The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 Thursday to adopt net neutrality rules for an open internet.
The FCC's decision makes for regulating internet service providers like public utilities, prohibiting companies from charging for faster lanes on the internet.
The FCC has voted to raise the broadband definition threshold to more than FIVE TIMES the current broadband speeds offered.
The current definition of broadband gives us about 4 megabits per second (MBPS) down, and 1 MBPS upload speed. The new standard raises the bar to 25 MBPS down and 3 MBPS up.
Holy cow, that will be amazing!
The Internet as we know it may have died Tuesday -- and nobody even noticed.
Thanks to the U.S. Court of Appeals decision, Internet service providers (ISPs) can now decide which websites work faster, which ones to charge you for and even which ones to block you from.
