Chairman Wheeler “Sets the Record Straight” on Proposed Rulemaking
On the FCC’s official blog, Chairman Wheeler addresses the Commission’s notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on the new net neutrality rules to be created after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District Columbia Circuit struck down parts of the rules the FCC established in 2010. In the post, Chairman Wheeler states that the NPRM will not change the net-neutrality principals such as anti-discrimination and anti-blocking of lawful content. Chairman Wheeler states his intention to have in place enforceable open internet rules by the end of 2014.
New rules will be considered on May 15.
