Open Internet Preservation Act

This bill amends the Communications Act of 1934 by prohibiting broadband internet access service providers from: (1) blocking lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices; and (2) impairing or degrading lawful internet traffic on the basis of internet content, application, or service, or use of a non-harmful device.

These prohibitions do not prevent providers from offering specialized services that are offered over the same network and may share network capacity with the broadband internet access service.

The bill allows broadband internet access services to be eligible for federal universal service support funding.
