The FCC Steps Up To Protect Net Neutrality. But Does It Go Far Enough? | TechCrunch

The FCC will in fact be reregulating the ways we connect to the Internet in order to protect net neutrality, a report in The Wall Street Journal says today. Assuming this is true, it's huge news, and potentially a huge win for consumers. But the big question will be: does it go far enough? There isn't much detail in the WSJ report, but the key part is that FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski's staff has been briefing FCC commissioners on changes that will be made to the regulation of Internet lines. The companies in charge of such lines, such as phone and cable companies, have been arguing that new regulations would hurt their businesses. They fear that they may have to open these lines to competitors (God forbid!) or be forced to have rate limits (the horror!). According to the WSJ report, the FCC officials are saying that won't be the case, and instead will mainly be concerned with ensuring net neutrality.
