FCC Initiates Net Neutrality Fight

Today the Federal Communications Commission took the first steps towards creating a national net neutrality policy. The FCC voted to move forward with FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski's proposal, which would prevent network operators (wireless and wireline) from favoring certain types of Internet traffic over others. The FCC's three Democratic members voted in favor of the proposal, but the Republican members only agreed that the debate needs to continue. Genachowski has published a draft of his policy, and is allowing three months for public comment on it. Network providers disagree with some of the proposed policies, which they feel will interfere with their ability to safely and appropriately manage the networks they have spent money to create. The FCC has said that it wants the entire process of creating a national broadband policy to be as open and transparent as possible. Comments on the proposal are due Jan. 14, 2010, with replies to comments due March 5, 2010.
