A Comcast plan to deploy internet access services over a Comcast’s network violates net neutrality rules, according to a new FCC report.
The commission’s net neutrality report released Wednesday found Comcast’s “Internet Access Services” would be exempt from the federal law protecting the open internet.
The FCC’s report says that the company’s proposal to use “Internet access services” as the basis for the exemption is “unfair, deceptive, and deceptive acts, omissions, and practices” that “unreasonably limit the ability of the Commission to enforce its regulatory authority.”
The commission also found that Comcast’s use of “Internet service” to justify its exemptions violates the agency’s authority under the Telecommunications Act.
The Commission is set to vote on the proposed rules at a closed-door meeting on Friday.
