U.S. Court Curbs F.C.C Authority on Web Traffic

April 8th, 2010 · No Comments · News

The New York Times reported on April 6 that “a federal appeals court ruled that regulators had limited power over Web traffic under current law.”  ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will be allowed to restrict specific sites and/or charge certain sites to deliver their content faster to users.”  This ruling can have an adverse effect on government efforts to “increase Americans’ access to high-speed Internet networks.”  The article by Edward Wyatt is informative and the court’s ruling is certainly not the end of the “net neutrality” discussion.
