Net Neutrality Has Been Rolled Back - But It's Not Dead Yet

Net neutrality ends this Monday June 11th motion to keep it alive could die in the House It's 4th and 40 for net neutrality supporters in Congress as House is short of the votes needed to bring up the CRA motion

Supporters of net neutrality argue that ISPs should deliver access to online content and apps equally, and prefer rules the FCC passed in 2015.

Proponents of net neutrality quickly mobilized for the overturn of the FCC's repeal, and last month, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would scrap the FCC's decision and retain net neutrality rules.

FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat who voted against the repeal, said Monday that the decision put the FCC "on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the law, and the wrong side of the American public".

Pai says that by deregulating the internet service provider industry, there will now be "strong consumer protections" and that "entrepreneurs [will get] the information they need as they develop new products and services".

Net neutrality rules created to ensure equal Internet access formally are set to expire on Monday after a lengthy battle. Under a new plan, the Federal Trade Commission will police the ISPs. If you're interested in letting your representatives know where you stand on net neutrality and how you'd like them to vote, you can see a tally of who has and hasn't agreed to support net neutrality here. "The consumer is going to be protected and we preserve the incentive for companies to build out better, faster, and cheaper internet access".

Kim Singapore summit: All the latest updates

ISPs have said they won't block or throttle legal websites, though they've left open the potential for charging more for some data delivery. Now Comcast Cable president Dave Watson posted a blog post today to reconfirm Comcast's "committed to an open internet". According to Wired, Comcast, the nation's largest broadband provider, is momentarily forbidden from violating net neutrality rules under the terms of the government's approval of its 2011 acquisition of NBC Universal.

In an opinion piece published on CNET, Mr Pai in the many years of net growth before the neutrality rules "Facebook, Amazon, and Google went from small start-ups to global tech giants".

On May 16, the U.S. Senate, where Republicans hold only a narrow majority, voted 52 to 47 to overturn the decision by the FCC - which is now composed of three Republicans and Rosenworcel.

"We'll see what happens after the [midterm] election", Lewis says. Congress could step in if several states pass their own legislation, and given the Republican majority, advocates for net neutrality are skeptical about the outcome. Others, including the governors of Montana and NY, used executive orders to force net neutrality.
