The Federal Communications Commission is discussing regulations that would prevent phone and cable companies from abusing their control over broadband connections.  "Network neutrality" rules
would ensure subscribers can access all legal Web sites and services, like Internet calling applications that compete with the broadband companies' offers.

The FCC chair has the support of two other democrats on the five-member commission, which is enough to launch the net neutrality proceeding.  It will likely produce the rules that the FCC would vote on by next summer.
