FCC and Open Internet

An Open Internet means consumers can go where they want, when they want. This principle is often referred to as Net Neutra­lity. It means innovators can develop products and services without asking for permis­sion. It means consumers will demand more and better broadband as they enjoy new lawful Internet services, applic­ations and content, and broadband providers cannot block, throttle, or create special "fast lanes" for that content. The FCC's Open Internet rules protect and maintain open, uninhi­bited access to legal online content without broadband Internet access providers being allowed to block, impair, or establish fast/slow lanes to lawful content.
