Court Strikes Down Net Neutrality

Court Strikes Down Net Neutrality

A US appeals court has struck down net neutrality.

The Federal Communications Commission issued an order in 2010 imposing network neutrality regulations on Internet providers, basically saying that ISP's couldn't block lawful content, applications, services or non-harmful devices, and not discriminate and transmitting lawful traffic.

In other words, one company couldn't make it harder for you to see the website of a competitor.

Today, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has struck down that rule in what's seen as a major victory for telecom and cable companies who have been opposed to net neutrality regulations for years.
