The US Senate votes in favour of restoring the FCC's net-neutrality rules
17 May, 2018, 15:06
The measure still faces an uphill battle.
The Senate vote passed 52-47 in favour of overruling the FCC's repeal, which is set to come into effect in June.
Still, Democrats are already using their messaging in campaign material. The Washington Post reported that the senate approved a resolution on Wednesday, targeting the FCC's December decision. Only some minor parts of the repeal took effect such as including the internet as an information service rather than a utility. "Today's bipartisan vote to reinstate net neutrality is critical to promoting innovation, supporting our hard-working people, and encouraging economic growth - and it would not have been possible without the energy and passion of all those who contacted their elected representatives and made their voices heard".
Comcast Corp., Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. have pledged to not block or discriminate against legal content after the net neutrality rules expire.
Supporters portrayed themselves as defenders of the rights of Americans to unfettered access to the Internet by keeping protections in place that they said would prevent telecommunications companies from serving as gatekeepers for online content.
It has been just over five months since the FCC in the USA voted to dismantle Obama-era net neutrality rules, with three out of five commissioners involved choosing to end the regulation.
"As the measure moves to the House of Representatives, I encourage every Granite Stater and American to continue speaking out about how repealing net neutrality protections would impact them". Such a vote was made possible under the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to review new regulations with a majority vote.

As reported by the Guardian, Senator John Thune, a Republican from South Dakota labelled the Senate's vote as "political theatre", saying it stood no chance of approval by the House.
Net neutrality is the principle that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) should provide equal access to all applications, content, platforms, and websites, and can not discriminate against content or content providers by making certain web page, applications, or videos load faster or slower than others. Rosenworcel said: "Today's vote is a sign that the fight for internet freedom is far from over".
Later, Rep. Anna Eshoo, a California Democrat who represents Silicon Valley, said she was happy by the result in the Senate with the legislation.
She says internet providers always tell her they won't throttle connections, even if there's no net neutrality. The FCC's reckless decision to end net neutrality creates major uncertainty for small businesses and threatens their ability to grow and create jobs in New Hampshire.
