Though the FCC passed its new set of rules to protect net neutrality two weeks ago, the exact text of the order has only just become available.

The document describes the rules and conditions under which the “light-touch” regulation applies, and details the internet’s Title II classification. It also presents each commissioner’s opinions on Net Neutrality – both in support and against – that informed the final decision.

We’ll be taking a more thorough look at the document soon to see if any interesting new tidbits pop up.

It’s a 400-page tome of a document, but if you want to learn more about the specifics going into the order yourself, follow through to the PDF link below.
