Genachowski has reaffirmed the long-standing (since 2005) broadband principles that will now be formalised by the FCC.
* That consumers are entitled to access the lawful Internet content of their choice.
* That they are also entitled to run applications and use services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement.
* That they are entitled to connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network.
* And that they are entitled to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.
Genachowski has added two extra principles. Internet access providers can't discriminate against particular Internet content or applications: and they must ensure that Internet access providers are transparent about the network management practises they implement.
