Policy

From platform moderation on Facebook and YouTube to big government struggles like the FCC and privacy regulation, policy is where we take on the rules of the internet. Watch here to follow Ajit Pai's ongoing fight against net neutrality, and Europe's push to protect its citizens' data with the GDPR. We're tracking broadband speeds to look for carrier throttling, making sure your connection stays clean. We're tracking moderation and free speech online, making sure the policies match up with what's happening in the real world. The law isn't always made with the internet in mind, and with antitrust and monopoly concerns overwhelming tech giants, there aren't many powers left standing up for the open web. So check in here to keep an eye on those stories, and we'll make sure you stay ahead of the rules of the internet — even the weird and confusing ones.
