    them Almost by definition such programs put nonprofits independent artists and startup companies at a disadvantage And zero rating programs also give broadband providers an incentive to further tilt the market in favor of their own services or those of preferred partners If you have a large enough data bucket or the price of data is relatively low it likely won t matter much that you can access some sites without tapping into your monthly allotment But if data is expensive or your usage caps are low you re much more likely to use those free services That dynamic gives providers an incentive to charge more for data or keep their data caps low not based on their economic costs but to promote their zero rated services And in fact that s exactly what s happened in European countries that allowed zero rating and didn t have net neutrality rules in place said Barbara van Schewick a professor at Stanford Law School Despite being asked to do so the FCC didn t ban zero rating programs in its net neutrality rules However it tacitly acknowledged that they could violate the spirit of net neutrality and vowed to keep an eye on them Reportedly the agency is studying the issue It s time for the FCC to take a bolder stance and ban them outright Zero rating plans may sound good but they re bad for the Internet and consumers in the long run Explore further Key facts on US open Internet regulation 10 shares feedback to editors 2016 San Jose Mercury News Distributed by Tribune Content Agency LLC Tweet Favorites Email Print PDF Featured Last comments Popular Detection of gravitational waves would open new window on universe Feb 10 2016 58 Gravitational waves detected 100 years after Einstein s prediction Feb 11 2016 144 GPS tracking down to the centimeter Feb 11 2016 10 A metal that behaves like water Feb 11 2016 2 Physicists create first photonic Maxwell s demon 14 hours ago 3 more Phys org on facebook Relevant PhysicsForums posts Looking for the right DC motor 32 minutes ago Support angle for steel rack 1 hour ago How high the tower 4 hours ago Engineering project ideas for an engineering club in my school Feb 11 2016 Looking to build a backyard windmill Feb 11 2016 Electronic component type what would do this Feb 11 2016 More from General Engineering Related Stories Key facts on US open Internet regulation February 26 2015 A landmark ruling by the US Federal Communications Commission seeks to enshrine the notion of an open Internet or net neutrality Here are key points USTelecom Texas Internet provider sue over net neutrality March 25 2015 The FCC says the first lawsuits filed against the government s new Internet traffic rules are premature and may be dismissed because they were filed too early Q A Net neutrality rules go into effect June 12 2015 New rules that treat the Internet like a public utility and
