New FCC policy, effective July 11, 2018, repeals net neutrality rules for internet providers
Monmouth-Independence: On Monday, June 11, the official repeal of net neutrality takes effect. Many months ago, when the FCC was first considering the repeal of net neutrality, MINET, Monmouth-Independence Network, and its Board of Directors made the decision to continue MINET’s policies guided by net neutrality in spite of new FCC rulings. Specifically: • MINET doesn’t block or throttle consumer access to lawful internet content; • MINET doesn’t use consumer data without consent for marketing and resell it to third parties; • MINET doesn’t engage in unlawful or anti-competitive discrimination against websites, streaming video services, and voice applications that may compete with traditional services, and we don’t offer pay-for-priority services; further • MINET INVESTS in its networks to give our customers the internet speed, capacity, and services they want most.
In spite of the repeal of net neutrality rules, MINET will continue observing these established standards and serving its subscribers accordingly.
