On December 23, 2010, the Federal Communications Commission promulgated new rules to enact "Net Neutrality," a regulatory scheme to ensure unblocked, non-discriminatory access to the Internet and the broadband wireline and wireless networks that carry Internet traffic. The new rules are certain to engender opposition from the telecommunications companies and cable operators who own and operate those networks, as well as from content and applications providers who think that they do not go far enough. This article, published by Bloomberg Law Reports on January 13, 2011, analyzes and critiques the new rules and is a follow up to "Net Neutrality and Broadband: A New Way Forward?", published by Bloomberg on December 13, 2010 and also available on JD Supra.
