Rep Mike Coffman Outlines a Net Neutrality Compromise

I am crafting a “net neutrality” bill that will put in place common-sense “rules of the road” that will ensure the Internet is an open, competitive place for people to do business. To those who provide the on-ramps to the Internet, my bill ensures that they will not: (1) block, (2) throttle, or (3) establish paid prioritization.  It further requires Internet service providers to be transparent in their network management practices.  In short, consumers are the ones who decide which websites or applications are best for them, not a third party. 
 
My bill also moves past the old debate between Title One and Title Two.  We don’t need to shoehorn the Internet into a heavy-handed Title Two regulatory regime.  The Internet is too important, therefore my bill places “broadband internet access services” under its own, new title. 

I believe that my bill will provide some much-needed clarity in this area and I look forward discussing it further with you and my colleagues in Congress.
