The Open Internet Background:

As if the internet was not available for use by any who attempted to access it for a very affordable price.

One of the most important features of the Internet is its openness: It uses free, publicly available standards that anyone can access and build to, and it treats all traffic that flows across the network in roughly the same way. This design has made it possible for anyone, anywhere to easily launch innovative applications and services, revolutionizing the way people communicate, participate, create, and do business - think of email, blogs, streaming video, and online shopping. The FCC is focused on ensuring that every American has access to open and robust high-speed Internet service - also known as broadband.

What Is the 'Open Internet?'

The "Open Internet" is the Internet as we know it, a level playing field where consumers can make their own choices about what applications and services to use, and where consumers are free to decide what content they want to access, create, or share with others. The FCC seeks to ensure that the Internet remains a powerful platform for innovation and job creation; to empower consumers and entrepreneurs; to protect free expression; to promote competition; to increase certainty in the marketplace by providing greater predictability for all stakeholders regarding federal policy in this area, and to spur investment both at the "edge," and in the core of our broadband networks.

What is 'Net Neutrality?'

Network, or "net," neutrality is just another way of referring to Open Internet principles.

Does the FCC Regulate Internet Content or Applications?

No, the FCC does not regulate Internet content or applications. To the contrary, the FCC seeks to develop and implement high-level, flexible rules of the road for broadband to ensure that no one - not the government and not the companies that provide broadband service - can restrict innovation on the Internet.

The FCC and the Open Internet

The FCC is currently considering a proposal for rules for the Open Internet that would establish that behavior harmful to consumers or competition by limiting the openness of the Internet will not be permitted.
The proposed rules would ensure:

1. Transparency: That all ISPs must transparently disclose to their subscribers and users all relevant information as to the policies that govern their network
This was the very same claim that we received from Obama when he was still just running for the Presidency.  Since then, we have seen anything but- with the IRS, Benghazi, the Affordable Care Act, and other legislation.

2. No Blocking: That no legal content may be blocked
Who will be in-charge of what will be considered "legal" content?  When the Government that will promise not to BLOCK legal content, yet they are the ones who get to determine what is or is not legal, that seems like an unfair advantage and a monopoly of a lot of untrustworthy individuals that are power hungry, deciding the legalities. 


3. No Unreasonable Discrimination: That ISPs may not act in a commercially unreasonable manner to harm the Internet, including favoring the traffic from an affiliated entity.  but what is unreasonable to the Government?  Recently during a hosted meeting by the White House on Terrorism, they stated that the Grassroots movement (T-Party and other like minded organizations) are considered more a threat to our nation than those within the groups of Isis, Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, and so on.
