Complex says: The Federal Communications Commission voted to pass the first of what could be many net neutrality laws—laws that grant Web surfers access to any legal online material from their home, along with set regulations to protect people’s web-browsing rights on their smartphones and other mobile devices. That means you’ll have full access to all legal content: applications, online calling services, etc. Web companies are now forced to implement new techniques for routing traffic and security measures that do not obstruct FCC regulations. Will these new net neutrality laws work? Well, we'll have to see, now, won't we?
