The FCC plans to vote on rules regarding net neutrality in February. The FCC expects to circulate a final proposal of the rules in the early part of the month and vote on them during its scheduled February 26 open meeting. The FCC has been considering how best to craft the laws around broadband and internet regulation for some time. The agency defined net neutrality rules that were put in place in late 2011. Those were ultimately stricken after the FCC lost a lawsuit to Verizon Wireless in January 2014. The FCC has been forging its new proposal since early 2014. At the heart of the matter is whether or not the FCC will define broadband as a utility, as requested by President Obama, which would give the government much greater oversight of the industry. Broadband providers are fighting such a change.
