FCC attempts to clarify new net neutrality plan but fails

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has just published a blog post that expands on a statement he gave last night on the topics of net neutrality and an open internet. Earlier yesterday, The Wall Street Journal issued a troubling report alleging that the FCC will soon propose new rules that effectively spell the end of net neutrality. There has been a great deal of misinformation that has recently surfaced regarding the draft Open Internet Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that we will today circulate to the Commission, he says. To be very direct, the proposal would establish that behavior harmful to consumers or competition by limiting the openness of the internet will not be permitted. But here again, Wheeler carefully steps around a major aspect of the Journals report, which claims that under the proposed rules, internet providers will be able to charge companies for speedier access to consumers.
