It looks as though the FCC is favoring a hybrid approach to net neutrality.
The FCC is reportedly closing in on an unsurprisingly convoluted solution to its 'Open Internet' proceedings around how to treat broadband data transmissions in the U.S. The debate generated a record 3.7 million comments from the public, most against the idea of letting certain types of traffic be prioritized over others. (You can download the entirety of the comments here.)
While the FCC and chairman Tom Wheeler haven't put forth a formal proposal, the scuttlebutt is that the commission will be presenting a hybrid plan, somewhere between reclassifying broadband internet service providers as common carriers and allowing them to charge for prioritization between providers and content creators like Netflix (which, not waiting for ideologies to catch up with reality, already pays broadband providers for 'interconnection').
