Dr Konstantinos Stylianou appears on Marketwatch to discuss net neutrality

2 March 2018 | Rebecca Stephenson

Federal net neutrality regulations were controversially abolished in the United States in December 2017, sparking fears that the open Internet as we know it is under threat.

Dr Konstantinos Stylianou recently spoke to Marketwatch on why despite the repeal of the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) rules, net neutrality is not effectively dead. He explained that states (as opposed to the federal government) may also be able to adopt rules to similar effect, that FCC’s decision to abolish the previous rules may be challenged in court and invalidated (as it has happened in the past), or that Congress may step in and create new rules on net neutrality thereby pre-empting the FCC.
