Four Internet Freedoms
In 2004, then-FCC Chairman Powell challenged broadband service providers to preserve four “Internet Freedoms”:
Freedom to Access Content. Consumers should have access to their choice of legal content.
Freedom to Use Applications. Consumers should be able to run applications of their choice.
Freedom to Attach Personal Devices. Consumers should be permitted to attach any devices they choose to the connection in their homes.
Freedom to Obtain Service Plan Information. Consumers should receive meaningful information regarding their service plans.
