USA net neutrality rules will expire on June 11: Federal Communications Commission

Pornhub, Reddit, Tumblr And 50 More Websites Are on 'Red Alert' Supporting Net Neutrality Vote in Congress FCC to end net neutrality protections June 11

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced that net neutrality protections will be repealed on June 11, 30 days after the notice was filed on Thursday.

The FCC under Trump-appointee Ajit Pai voted along party lines in December 2017 to roll back net neutrality regulations put in place during the Obama administration.

Internet service providers will still have to provide information regarding any possible congestion management, application-specific behavior, device attachment rules, security practices, or any blocking, throttling, affiliated prioritization and paid prioritization that they do.

It is important to know that the move to kill net neutrality will not just affect internet service providers, but that it will also have a significant effect on consumers. One particularly pointed voice in the debate is Jonathan Spalter, the president and CEO of USTelecom, who greeted the Senate measure with a tough-worded op-ed on Morning Consult earlier this week that questioned why some of the tech world's biggest companies weren't being targeted by the net neutrality efforts, argued that the measures on which the net neutrality rule was built are outdated regulatory rules, and emphasized that the net neutrality rule now in effect would have severe economic effects if kept around. A petition related to net neutrality with 32 signatures was delivered on Wednesday, thereby forcing a vote on the Senate floor. The net neutrality rules are in place to prevent broadband internet companies from having control over what you see on the internet.

"The FCC is on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the law, and the wrong side of the American people", she argued.

Up until the CRA vote, net neutrality supporters are launching a public campaign to bring attention to the issue. With the prolonged absence of Republican Senator John McCain due to illness, proponents believe they will win on a 50-49 vote.

Gigi Sohn, a counselor to former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, recently told CNN that the future of net neutrality will likely "stay murky" through the remainder of this calendar year, "at the very least". Democrats and one Republican, Senator Susan Collins, have already publicly backed reversing the FCC's changes with the CRA, and a vote is expected in the Senate as soon as next week. But for the resolution to pass entirely, a majority would still be needed in the House - where it faces more opposition - and President Donald Trump would have to sign it. Brian Schatz (D-HI) in a statement to The Verge says he is "hopeful" they can secure the necessary 51st vote.

FCC, however, states that net neutrality will eventually benefit consumers abolishing regulation could lead to encouraging investment in network infrastructure.
