Net Neutrality is Alive and Well . . . At Least for Now


In a close vote last week the Federal Communications Commission decided that the internet should be treated like a public utility. In other words, there will be no fast and slow lanes–internet service providers will not be allowed to decide which content should be given priority over other content. The danger of a non-net neutrality world would be that big companies with lots of bucks could buy faster delivery speeds for their content while smaller cash-poor websites could be relegated to the slow lane. So, for now, we can breath a sigh of relief.

But the battle hasn’t yet been won. Comcast predicts that some large providers will sue to override the FCC decision.
