FCC's Net Neutrality Rules One Step Closer to Reality

The Federal Communications Commission recently published its proposed Net Neutrality rules in the Federal Register. The rules are set to go into effect on November 20 — if the wireless industry accepts them as they are.

Wireless providers wouldn't be allowed to block internet calling services that make use of wireless broadband data connections (or any competitive service). The providers would also have to publicly disclose their network management practices. However, the providers would have the say-so to manage their networks in order to deal with congestion.
