DailyTech – FCC Files Paperwork to Dismiss Verizon’s Anti-Net-Neutrality Suit
Specifically, the FCC’s new rules exempt wireless carriers like Verizon from the ban on throttling internet connections. Verizon is perhaps upset about the provisions that would prevent it from banning certain sites such as 4Chan and the provision which prevents it from charging users fees on a per-site basis, something that communications companies arecurrently in talks to deploy. Under such a scheme, each site you visited (e.g. DailyTech, Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, etc.) would result in either a separate monthly fee or a separate per-visit fee being added to your account.
