FCC Establishes New Inbox for Open Internet Comments

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)  will consider proposed rules to protect an Open Internet on May 15. The proposed rules will ask questions about how best to ensure the Internet remains an open platform for innovation and expression.

Chairman Wheeler is encouraging the public to share their views now. He intends to have rules of the road in place before the end of the year to protect consumers and entrepreneurs. He will be listening, and your comments will help inform the final rules.

According to the FCC,

“The principle of the Open Internet is sometimes referred to as “net neutrality.” Under this principle, consumers can make their own choices about what applications and services to use and are free to decide what lawful content they want to access, create, or share with others. This openness promotes competition and enables investment and innovation.”

Please send your thoughts to openinternet@fcc.gov.  You may also file comments in the docket.
