The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is preparing a ruling to roll back net neutrality rules enacted under President Obama, to, in part, spur innovation and investment. President Obama demanded that the FCC reclassify the Internet as a public utility under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. He wanted rules to ensure “that neither the cable company nor the phone company [would] be able to act as a gatekeeper, restricting what you can do or see online."

 

What do you think? Should we prioritize an open internet? Would loosening of the rules lead to some customers getting stuck in a "slow lane" or the blocking of some content? Should ISPs be thought of and regulated like utilities?
