Tom translates Title II.

wheeler-tomWriting a guest blog post on Wired.com, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler explains in detail the proposal he submitted to his fellow Commissioners last week to ensure net neutrality. His plan, he says, will “preserve the Internet as an open platform for innovation and free expression,” a plan “rooted in long-standing regulatory principles, marketplace experience, and public input received over the last several months.” Wheeler says that his proposal “assures the rights of Internet users to go where they want, when they want, and the rights of innovators to introduce new products without asking anyone’s permission.” At the same time, Wheeler—who is from the telecommunications industry himself—wants to make sure that “all of this can be accomplished while encouraging investment in broadcast networks. There will be no rate regulation, no tariffs, no last-mile unbundling.”
