FCC Agrees With Net Neutrality, Votes Against Paid Internet Fast Lanes

(WLNS) – The FCC has agreed to impose strict new regulations on Internet service providers, such as Comcast, Verizon and AT&T.

The regulatory agency voted Thursday in favor of rules aimed at enforcing what’s called “net neutrality.”

That’s the idea that service providers shouldn’t intentionally block or slow web traffic, creating paid fast lanes on the Internet.

The rules are expected to trigger lawsuits, which could drag out for several years.
