The Federal Communications Commission has installed rules for its Net Neutrality policy, which will go into effect Nov. 20 for broadband access providers.

The rules are to ensure certainty and predictability to all Internet stakeholders in terms of content, service providers and consumers. Rules include:

  • Transparency requiring disclosure of the network management terms and broadband services.
  • No blocking lawful content, applications, services or non-harmful devices.
  • No unreasonable discrimination in transmitting lawful network traffic.

“We believe these rules, applied with the complementary principle of reasonable network management, will empower and protect consumers and innovators while helping ensure that the Internet continues to flourish, with robust private investment and rapid innovation at both the core and the edge of the network,” the FCC said in its order.
