The Internet in the United States grew out of the ARPANET, a network sponsored by the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the U. Internet access in the United States is largely provided by the private sector and is available in a variety of forms, using a variety of technologies, at a wide range of speeds and costs. Both types of access generally use a modem, which converts digital data to analog for transmission over a particular analog network (ex. Operating on a single channel, it monopolizes the phone line and is the slowest method of accessing the Internet. The Internet in the United States in turn provided the foundation for the worldwide Internet of today. In subsequent years dial-up declined in favor of broadband access.Together Title II and Section 706 support clear rules of the road, providing the certainty needed for innovators and investors, and the competitive choices and freedom demanded by consumers.The new rules apply to both fixed and mobile broadband service.This represents an increase from 14th out of 49 countries and 5.3 Mbit/s for January to March 2011 (Q1).The global average for Q2 2013 was 3.3 Mbit/s, up from 2.1 Mbit/s for Q1 2011.On August 5, 2005, the FCC reclassified some services as information services rather than telecommunications services, and replaced common carrier requirements on them with a set of four less-restrictive net neutrality principles.These principles, however, are not FCC rules, and therefore not enforceable requirements.

Around the start of the 21st century, most residential access was by dial-up, while access from businesses was usually by higher speed connections.As a practical matter, there is a degree of net neutrality in the United States, in that telecommunications companies rarely offer different rates to broadband and dial-up Internet consumers based on content or service type. law as an information service, and not a telecommunications service, and thus has not been subject to common carrier regulations.However, there are no clear legal restrictions against these practices. Five failed attempts have been made to pass network neutrality bills in Congress. Access to the Internet can be divided into dial-up and broadband access. S.-based organizations and individuals also use generic top-level domains, such as .com, .net, .org, .name, etc.On December 21, 2010, the FCC approved the FCC Open Internet Order banning cable television and telephone service providers from preventing access to competitors or certain web sites such as Netflix.
