The FCC and Net Neutrality

Jeremy Rodriguez CIS1055.008


The concept of net neutrality

The Concept of Net Neutrality

  • Advocates no restriction on internet usage whether it be content, sites or platforms.

  • If you pay for internet service you should get access to all of the internet.

  • Overall, freedom and openness on the web.


The issue

The Issue


Proponents

Proponents

  • Net Neutrality is supposed to help create competition and prevent ISP’s from becoming monopolies.

  • The internet was created to be an open platform and is world wide, so no one entity has the right to regulate it.

  • Net Neutrality means no discrimination


Opponents

Opponents

  • ISP’s see Net Neutrality as a threat to their businesses.

  • They argue that due to large influx of broadband internet users, they need to prioritize data (throttling).

  • The United States’ infrastructure is far inferior than countries like Japan and even China.


Broadband speeds

Broadband Speeds

Where does the fcc come in

Where does the FCC come in?

  • The FCC is now beginning to regulate the way ISP provide service.

  • With some political push, the FCC is fighting to protect the principles of Net Neutrality.

  • In 2009 the FCC banned any type of data prioritizing. This was in response to Comcast and its throttling practices


So what s the problem

So what's the problem?

  • After banning data prioritizing, the FCC began investigating how it can protect the internet by regulation.

  • They want to document set rules for users and providers on what they can and can’t do.

  • One controversy is that a suggested regulation allows United States law to govern the internet.


Solution

Solution

  • 1 rule is needed for Net Neutrality to work.

  • If you pay for access, you will get access the same internet without data prioritizing.

  • This also shifts the focus on infrastructure rather than content filtering to make the internet better for Americans.
