This question already has an answer here:
I was a little surprised not to see anything here on Meta or on the SE blog regarding the recent Net Neutrality rulings in the US.
I'm hoping to find the team's official take on the issue and whether or not they expect to be making any changes to deal with the potential change in landscape.
Please note: I'm looking for an official response. I realize this may be a controversial issue and I really don't want to stir up debate.
So... What, if any, is the official stance of the SE team on the recent Net Neutrality rulings?
On January 14, 2014, the DC Circuit Court determined in the case of Verizon v. Federal Communications Commission that the FCC has no authority to enforce Network Neutrality rules, since service providers are not identified as "common carriers".It did, however, agree that FCC has the ability to regulate broadband and may craft more specific rules that stop short of identifying service providers as common carriers, according to lobbyist group Public Knowledge. The likelihood of this occurring under new FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is low, as he has stated in the past that he is not opposed to providers receiving consideration to prioritize certain traffic.
