[Futureoftheinternet.Org] Net neutrality: the FCC takes back the ball
There’s some movement in the U.S. network neutrality debates under a rather dry heading: “Further Inquiry Into Two Under-Developed Issues in the Open Internet Proceeding.”

[...] the FCC notes the areas where consensus has been reached: some conception of net neutrality is a good idea, at least on non-wireless platforms; that network practices should be disclosed; that net neurality shouldn't preclude reasonable network management practices by ISPs; and that case-by-case, flexible adjudication beats lengthy and complex rules.
