Promoting an Open Internet

  • In 2005, the Commission adopted an Internet Policy Statement that set forth four consumer-based principles:

    • Consumers are entitled to access the lawful Internet content of their choice;

    • Consumers are entitled to run applications and use services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement;

    • Consumers are entitled to connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network; and

    • Consumers are entitled to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.
