FCC chairman proposes strongest net neutrality regulations yet

In a huge win for net neutrality advocates, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler on Wednesday proposed regulating internet service providers like utility companies. The proposal would create "bright-line rules" to "ban paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services," Wheeler wrote in an op-ed for Wired.

Last year, President Obama called on the FCC to "implement the strongest possible rules to protect net neutrality." The FCC is expected to vote on the proposal later this month.
