1 min read

websiteA Government Accountability Office review of the Federal Communications Commission‘s Internet neutrality rules found that the FCC complied with legal requirements as it implemented the regulations.

GAO said April 28 the FCC developed the Open Internet Order to regulate broadband as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Communications Act.

The policy is designed to promote uninhibited access to lawful online content by prohibiting fixed and mobile broadband providers from implementing measures intended to block, throttle or favor Internet traffic.

The FCC requires that providers disclose network performance and management practices as well as commercial terms of their service offerings.

The agency also aims to promote broadband investment, usage and innovation through the open Internet framework.
