Taken from the briefing Net Neutrality Redux recorded September 2017 in New York.

Net neutrality is once again back in the news, with the Federal Communications Commission proposing to reverse the classification of broadband internet access service as a common carrier service and to roll back many of the Open Internet rules that were upheld last year by the D.C. Circuit. More than 10 million comments have been filed so far on the Commission’s proposals, and Internet Service Providers, content providers, and other internet and communications companies are assessing the potential outcomes from this proceeding – including further litigation. Businesses and regulators in other countries continue to monitor these developments.
