The debate continues to rage over the issue of net neutrality, which entails government requirements that internet providers treat all customers the same regardless of how they use the web. The Federal Communications Commission, led by Chairman Julius Genachowski, fcc, net, neutrality, webhas announced that it will consider going ahead with a net neutrality rule at its meeting Dec. 21, Politico reports.

With Republicans opposing the onerous burden of new regulations, the FCC and Congress could get into a nasty spat. Genachowski released the FCC’s agenda barely within the customary three-week period for circulating orders prior to an open meeting. The idea is to give the public a chance to respond.

The exact FCC plans remain vague. The agenda merely states that the FCC will address “an order adopting basic rules of the road to preserve the open Internet as a platform for innovation, investment, competition, and free expression.”
