The Federal Communications Commission warned Internet providers on Wednesday that they will face penalties if they mislead their customers about the connection speeds they're offering.

This rule, called the "Open Internet Transparency Rule," is the only surviving piece of the net-neutrality rules struck down by a federal court in February. The rule requires broadband providers to accurately disclose how they handle traffic, Internet speeds, and prices to consumers.  
The agency threatens to crack down on Internet providers that lie about speed.

 The U.S. is confident that the murder weapon was an SA-11 Gadfly 9K37M1 Buk -1M fired missile. A dispatch from the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine indicates that the rocket launcher was given to pro-Russian separatists by Moscow. At this point, no one is saying that the separatists intended to down a passenger jet. Evidence (see below) suggests that rebel forces believed the plane was a Ukrainian military transport vehicle, since the Buk radar guidance system provides very, very little information about the type of target it’s pointing at. Pro-Russian conspiracy mongers, meanwhile, are looking to plant blame for the incident on Ukraine, claiming that the downing of the plane was a deliberate act of the Ukrainian government.
