New net-neutrality regulations pass


The Federal Communications Commission approved so-called net-neutrality rules by a 3-2 vote yesterday, banning Internet service providers, led by AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp., from blocking or slowing Web content sent to homes and businesses, Bloomberg reported.

Supporters argued that Internet providers, which also own some of the content they deliver online, might interfere with videos and services owned by others, such as Google Inc. The agency also affirmed that providers may charge subscribers based on how much data they consume.
