Europe to Vote on Less Strict Net Neutrality Rules…a Week After U.S. Approves Stricter Guidelines

The Blaze - As the Federal Communications Commission begins to implement strict new Internet rules in the U.S., Europe appears to be taking steps at making its online rules more lenient.

On Wednesday, ambassadors and representatives of the European Union will vote on a preliminary net neutrality measure that would allow Internet service providers across the pond to deliver speedier access to companies that are willing to pay more, the Wall Street Journal reported.

... If the vote passes, the proposal will then go to the European Parliament, the European Commission and the European Union Council. Those three bodies would debate the issue over the coming weeks and if they can reach an agreement, the proposal would then become law.
