FCC to regulate net neutrality
The new FCC chairman Julius Genachowski has come out firmly in favor of the concept of net neutrality with his introductionof new rules governing U.S. broadband carriers. In a nutshell, net neutrality prevents broadband carriers like Comcast or Verizon from filtering or “shaping” network traffic in a way that would benefit certain types of traffic (say, VoIP or Internet TV ). The chairman’s rules echo the FCC’s current net neutrality principles, while adding a new provision requiring that any “network management” (aka traffic shaping) takes place in a transparent manner. Both the broadband ISP Comcast and mobile providers Verizon and AT&T have already come out against the new regulations.
