FCC Passes Strongest Net Neutrality Rules In America’s Historyjeudi 26 février 2015
The open internet finally got the protection it deserves from profit-hungry cable companies. The FCC just approved the strongest set of net neutrality rules in this country’s history, punctuating a years-long battle for this future of the internet. However, the war’s not yet over.
The new rules largely resemble the open internet rules that Obama laid out three months ago. They forbid paid prioritization—the practice that enables cable companies to create internet "fast lanes"—as well as throttling. The new rules do not allow internet service providers to block websites and give the FCC authority to intervene when big cable companies don’t act in the public interest.
