What Net Neutrality Will Mean for Cyber-Street

March 16, 2015

The Federal Communications Commission's publication of new rules on March 12, 2015 treating internet service providers as common carriers (akin to utility companies) is seen by many to be a meaningful step toward ensuring "net neutrality" or an "open internet." Others fear the move could significantly hamper internet innovation due to unnecessary and uncertain government regulation. However, it is difficult to predict at this time what effect the FCC's new rules – or the bill introduced in the House of Representatives on March 4, 2015, intended to roll back the FCC's decision before the final rules had even been published – will have on everyday life in cyberspace for consumers and business-to-business users.
