PUC Chair Says Concerns Over Net Neutrality “Overblown”

(WNAX) — The Federal Communications Commission voted last month to roll back so called “net neutrality” rules that govern access to the internet.  Opponents to the rollback are concerned that internet service providers could limit access to the net.  South Dakota Public Utilities Commission Chair Kristie Fiegen says she thinks the potential problems are overblown…

Fiegen says while the PUC has no authority over internet providers, they can help those that have concerns or complaints…

There are some bi-partisan proposals in Congress that would set internet access rules in law, but those bills have not made much progress.
