April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Peter Cook reports on proposed changes to net neutrality rules by the FCC on Bloomberg Television’s “In The Loop.”

Of net neutrality?

That is certainly what consumer groups are saying.

Not what tom wheeler saying, chairman of the fcc.

Consumer advocates really upset.

They say this is a complete retreat of net neutrality.

Remember, this was a campaign pledge from president obama back in 2008. this has political implications as well.

The fcc has tried twice to put new net neutrality laws in place only to have federal court tossed them out three times.

This time the chairman trying a new approach.

According to an official briefed on the plan, today he will share with his colleagues a proposal to allow consumers to any web content they want, but for the first time internet service providers will be able to charge a premium to him funny stuff want their information access at the fastest possible speed.

The fcc will decide on a cage -- case-by-case races if they are commercially responsible.

Basically a judgment call.

The safe legal ground between internet companies and broadband providers.

Not the solution internet advocates and consumer groups want it.

The fcc inviting isps to pick winners and losers online.

The very essence of commercial reasonableness dan third is discrimination.

They and others promising to challenge the fcc proposed rule, whatever they look like in the final form.

This is probably headed back to court.

A vote probably in may.

Thank you.
