FCC Approves Net Neutrality

February 26, 2015 | By Jason Kint, CEO – DCN @jason_kint

The Federal Communications Commission by a 3-2 vote today voted to reclassify broadband internet service as a public utility. This will prohibit Internet service providers from blocking Web traffic or charging websites for priority service.

Jason Kint, DCN CEO, commented:

We appreciate the FCC’s action today because it starts with the premise that the consumer experience should not be compromised.  Consumers’ access to great content and experiences on the Internet should be protected.  Under these rules, future and current content creators will continue to have the ability to innovate and connect with their consumers.
