FCC approves 'net neutrality'

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 12:00 PM

Score one for equal access to the Internet.

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to approve proposed new rules aimed at blocking Internet service providers, like Comcast, and wireless phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T, from intentionally halting or slowing Web traffic.

The proposal, or so-called net neutrality regulations, will set off a series of regulatory procedures and a final rule is expected to be introduced early next year.
