7:32 PM Edited by Blony

. The Federal Communications Commission is expected to advance a proposal with a three out of five vote that supports net neutrality rules and would prohibit Internet providers, including mobile carriers, from blocking or prioritizing traffic to certain web sites, the Washington Post reports.

Chairman Julius Genachowski is expected to announce a new guideline regarding network traffic later today that would ensure equality across the web, and for the first time extends those binding principles to wireless networks.

The proposal is to be voted on at the organization's October meeting with the new guideline expected to be introduced in the spring.
