U.S. Internet Rules to Take Effect November 20

On Friday, the FCC published the new rules of the internet, commonly known as Net Neutrality, in the Federal Register. The set of laws define consumer and Internet service provider’s rights, responsibilities and limitations. The new laws are set to take effect on November 20th, pending promised legal appeals.

The rules, adopted last December in a 3-2 vote, give the FCC power to ensure consumer access to huge movie files and other content while allowing Internet service providers to manage their networks to prevent congestion.
