    The FCC plan calls for regulating the Internet like a public utility. Its intent is to make sure that service providers do not block or slow traffic but that the Internet remains “open” and “neutral.” The proposal would also extend the regulation to mobile phones and other devices and allows the FCC to step in and address issues as they arise.
