Last year, the FCC issued a proposal to rollback the 2015 Open Internet Order and voted to dismantle its net neutrality regulations.
The repeal of the 2015 net neutrality rules become final 60 days after the FCC’s order is published in the Federal Register, a daily publication of the US federal government that issues proposed and final administrative regulations of federal agencies.
The rules have not yet been published so the time clock has not yet started. Once the roll back is final, we can expect supporters of net neutrality to file lawsuits challenging the FCC’s authority.
At the same time, Congress will consider legislation to write into law net neutrality protections. NAR supports legislation that will protect American businesses and consumers by preventing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from blocking, throttling, or discriminating against Internet traffic and prohibit paid prioritization (fast lane) arrangements.
NAR has actively supported net neutrality for years.
