Obama Administration's Net Neutrality Rules

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday released the full text of its net neutrality rules, detailing how the agency plans to ensure the Internet remains free and open.

The order released today will reclassify consumer broadband as a utility under Title II of the Communications Act, giving the FCC the authority to issue strong, "bright line" rules against practices such as blocking lawful content and paid prioritization. The rules will also extend to mobile access.

Read the full text of the order below.
