Tomorrow the FCC will vote on repealing Net Neutrality. Today Comcast wanted to make it clear that they won’t abuse their powers as an ISP in a blog post by David L. Cohen Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer.
In the blog post Comcast promised the following points:
- Will Comcast broadband customers still be able to visit any lawful site they want to? Yes.
- Will Comcast block or throttle access to Internet sites? No.
- Is Comcast creating Internet fast lanes? No, we’ve said consistently we’ve not entered into paid prioritization agreements and have no plans to do so.
- Will Comcast still clearly post policies on network management? Absolutely, you can find them here.
Comcast went on to say:
“We have repeatedly stated, and reiterate today, that we do not and will not block, throttle, or discriminate against lawful content. These fundamental tenets of net neutrality are also key components of our core network and business practices – they govern how we run our Internet business.” Said Mr Cohen.
Comcast went on to say that “despite repeated distortions and biased information, as well as misguided, inaccurate attacks from detractors, our Internet service is not going to change. Comcast customers will continue to enjoy all of the benefits of an open Internet today, tomorrow, and in the future. Period.”
For now, it looks like the current Net Neutrality rules will end with a vote by the FCC tomorrow. What will happen next is something many are worried about. For now though all we can do is wait and see what will happen next.
