ABSTRACT

Net Neutrality Debate: Access to Broadband Networks [December 20, 2017]   [open pdf - 706KB]

This document amends previous reports (CRS Report for Congress, R40616) by including additional legislation presented. From the Summary: "H.R. 4682, introduced on December 19, 2017, by Representative Blackburn, contains among its provisions those that prohibit blocking and throttling by broadband internet access providers and classifies broadband internet access service as an information service. Whether Congress will choose to address comprehensive legislation to amend the 1934 Communications Act, to provide a broad-based regulatory framework, remains to be seen."
