This week’s question concerns net neutrality. The Federal Communications Commission last week began drafting legislation that would prevent phone and cable companies from abusing their control over the broadband access market, by prohibiting them from censoring certain kinds of Internet traffic. Proponents say the rules are needed to ensure that broadband subscribers can access all legal Web sites and services and prevent service providers from engaging in anti-competitive practices. Opponents argue such regulations would make it more difficult for broadband providers to manage as well as expand their networks.
What do you think? Should net neutrality rules be imposed on broadband service providers? Yes or no?
