FCC to Get Draft Rules on Internet Traffic, Chairman Says

U.S. regulators next month are to consider draft rules to keep Internet service providers from slowing or blocking access to websites, the head of the Federal Communications Commission said today.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, speaking at a news conference in Washington, said he would propose rules to be considered at the agency’s May meeting. A preliminary vote would start a comment period before a final regulation to replace rules a court voided in January. Wheeler didn’t give details of his proposal.
