According to the US Federal Communications Commission, basic principles of Internet access guarantee that consumers/users are entitled to access the lawful Internet content of their choice, run the applications and use services of their choice, and connect to legal devices that do not harm the network, subject to the needs of law enforcement.
An ISP must treat lawful content, applications and services in a transparent and non-discriminatory manner. Some basic network management is reasonable to manage congestion on networks, address harmful traffic (viruses, spam), block unlawful content (child porn), but policies must be disclosed and may not be discriminatory.
Is net neutrality worth preserving? Would the end of Net neutrality benefit large telecommunication companies? Would it actually be better for users or not? Would net neutrality be better achieved through market forces or regulation?
