On December 21, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted in favor of an order that establishes rules of the road to preserve the open Internet.
Public Knowledge’s Position
There are several glaring shortcomings of the FCC’s rules, including the absence of strong protections for wireless Internet connections. Furthermore, the rules do not provide certainty, but instead provide a path for further litigation and continued debate over Net Neutrality.
Despite these flaws, the rules still provide basic consumer protections that we believe will help to preserve an open Internet.
Public Knowledge will continue to defend and advocate for enforceable rules of the road to prevent Internet access providers from picking winners and losers online before consumers can do so themselves.
Public Knowledge is
- against paid prioritization, which is not explicitly prohibited by the rules, and
- in favor of strong protections on wireless broadband connections as well as wireline.
