admin | November 10, 2014

November 10, 2014In 2010, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued a rule designed to enshrine net neutrality as the law of the land, prohibiting fixed-line internet service providers from blocking or discriminating against traffic to lawful content on the web. In April 2011, the House of Representatives passed a resolution of disapproval against the FCC's net neutrality rule.

This 2011 FCC rule was thrown out in 2014 by the D.C. Circuit as a result of the Verizon v. Federal Communication Commission case.
