US agency revising Internet rules after backlash
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler is broadening the scope of his proposed open Internet rules and suggesting tougher standards for Internet providers who wish to create paid priority fast lanes on their networks.

 

According to an FCC official, Wheeler made revisions after the commission received 35,000 public comments – many of them expressing outrage. The FCC first briefed reporters on the proposed rules last month. (AP)
