A slew of recent activity has pushed Internet (net) neutrality back into the headlines. CDT has been fully engaged in the net neutrality debate in both the US and Europe, and has been working to chart a path forward to maintain the open nature of the Internet.
A federal appeals court struck down the FCC’s Open Internet Rules, once again bringing into question whether and how the agency will fully protect net neutrality. The FCC finalized new rules in February 2015, which took effect in June. As attempts to weaken or attack the rules occur, CDT defend them. In Europe, net neutrality legislation was recently approved by the European Parliament and now will be revised by member states, with many issues yet to be resolved.
This page includes the latest commentary, insights and analysis on the rapidly evolving policy around Internet neutrality.
