Worried by FCC Plan, Net-Neutrality Advocates at Colleges Gauge Next Steps
Posted: 01-May-2014 [Source: The Chronicle of Higher Education]

[Some members of the higher-­education community, including major professional associations and individual scholars, say they will fight proposed rules from the Federal Communications Commission that would reportedly allow Internet-service providers to charge a premium for faster connection speeds.]

Megan O'Neil -- "The rules, which will be publicly presented at the FCC’s May 15 meeting, have been characterized by some as a death knell for what’s known as net neutrality—the equitable treatment of all flows of information on the Internet.

"The implications for universities are profound in terms of restricting the ability to perform research, to share research, to collaborate, to provide our students with the best access to information and the best opportunities to learn," says Barbara Stripling, president of the American Library Association and an assistant professor of practice at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University."
