Internet could survive net neutrality
January 20 , 2014
Most reactions to the federal court's decision in favor of net neutrality have been negative since critics worry that Internet service providers will have the ability to mess up the way we surf the web.
However, another camp is encouraging everyone to think of the matter in different way since FCC can still keep a check on ISPs.
The court "concluded that the FCC could regulate Internet providers under a statute known as Section 706, which authorizes the FCC to take various steps to promote broadband deployment," a law professor said. "The court may have handed the FCC - and the public - a victory that goes well beyond network neutrality."
Moreover, it's not time for service providers to celebrate just yet since "even failing a common-carriers declaration, net neutrality isn't buried," Tim Fernholz at Quartz writes.
