La FCC ha pubblicato ufficialmente le regole per la neutralità della rete.
Dal 20 novembre la Federal Communications Commission avrà potere sanzionatorio sui provider americani di rete fissa che mettano in atto pratiche scorrette e discriminanti verso servizi e applicazioni web.
The Commission adopts three basic protections that are grounded in broadly accepted Internet norms, as well as our own prior decisions.
First, transparency: fixed and mobile broadband providers must disclose the network management practices, performance characteristics, and commercial terms of their broadband services.
Second, no blocking: fixed broadband providers may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices; mobile broadband providers may not block lawful websites, or block applications that compete with their voice or video telephony services.
Third, no unreasonable discrimination: fixed broadband providers may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic.
