Formal Declaration of Net Neutrality Under Way At FCC
Well, if you’ve been worried about using your various Net-capable gadgets because of the lack of net neutrality law, then worry no longer. Seems that the FCC is about to adopt net neutrality as a set of general principles soon.
Net neutrality, in case you don’t know, is a standard that requires all internet service providers to treat all information equally in terms of download speed. For instance, Comcast recently decided to force BitTorrent users to accept vastly slowed download speeds as they gave precedence to other users. Technically, that’s not illegal, but the FCC did scold Comcast, and now with net neutrality, such actions as Comcast took will be illegal in the future.
So download away, folks–your ISP can’t stop you any more.
