Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all traffic equally and should not discriminate among different types of content or services by blocking access, slowing access, or charging extra to access for some websites. In 2015, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted the “Open Internet” rule which banned a two-tiered Internet composed of pay-to-play “fast” lanes and “slow” lanes. Victory for net neutrality was short-lived, as FCC voted in December 2017 to dismantle the rule. ASBC is closely monitoring court battles in 2018 and urges Congress to act immediately to restore net neutrality protections.
