FCC’s “Open Internet”

The Federal Communications Commission published new rules on net neutrality or what’s being touted as the “open Internet” policy.
The policy covers the practise of some ISP’s and network providers to block high bandwidth traffic on their networks.
Many providers such as Verisgn and Commcast are opposing the move and vow to take legal action against the FCC on it; while others support it, even in it’s watered down form.
It remains to be seen just how vigilent the FCC are on this policy but it’s at least a step in the right direction and hopefully to be followed by others around the world.
