Net Neutrality

There is no call for action on this hot topic, because it is being decided in Committee among the five appointed commissioners of the Federal Communications Commission.  To learn more about net neutrality and the impact to the business, here is some information published by NAR:

NAR issued a  two-page issue brief on net neutrality, which includes NAR’s seven principles to guide lobbying efforts on any legislation to require broadband providers to adhere to net neutral practices:

  1. Consumers are entitled to access the lawful Internet content of their choice;
  2. Consumers are entitled to run applications and services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement;
  3. Consumers are entitled to connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network;
  4. Consumers are entitled to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers;
  5. Network providers should not discriminate among internet data transmissions on the basis of the source of the transmission as they regulate the flow of network content;
  6. Broadband providers must be transparent about the service they provide and how they run their network and;
  7. These principles should apply to both wireless and wireline networks.
