House vote still looms at Net Neutrality comes to an end

Net Neutrality Ends Tomorrow, FCC On Track To Remove Rules As Scheduled Net Neutrality Officially Expired. Now States Are Passing Their Own Laws

It's hard to say what specific changes you might experience; part of the whole point of undoing the net neutrality rules is that Internet providers will begin to experiment with all-new business models we haven't seen before.

Pai also called the new course of action a "tremendous bipartisan success" and noted that the rules were "especially harmful for smaller internet service providers who didn't have the means to withstand a regulatory onslaught". And in May, the Senate voted in favor of reversing the FCC's repeal; however, the measure still needs to be passed in the House of Representatives, where afterwards it will then need President Trump's signature.

The Federal Communications Commission's repeal of popular net neutrality rules - which had upheld the principle that all internet traffic should be treated equally - took effect Monday, despite opposition from the U.S. Senate and many state lawmakers along with numerous court challenges.

Pai says Internet service will become cheaper and faster with the rules now gone.

Net neutrality was repealed past year under an order called the "Restoring Internet Freedom" order. We still don't and won't block, throttle or discriminate against lawful content.

According to the op-ed, Pai thinks that transferring power over the internet to ISPs will "protect consumers".

Meanwhile, even before the end of the net-neutrality rules, several broadband providers, including AT&T and Verizon, were experimenting with so-called zero-rating programs. According to the National Council of State Legislatures, governors in six states - New Jersey, New York, Montana, Rhode Island, Vermont and Hawaii - have signed executive orders upholding net neutrality, and three - Washington, Vermont and OR - have enacted legislation that does so.

Supreme Court rules in favor of OH 'voter purge'
The court's decision essentially endorses "the very purging that Congress expressly sought to protect against", Sotomayor wrote . A three-judge panel on that court had ruled 2-1 that Ohio's practice was illegal.


Ajit Pai, who chairs the FCC, was known to oppose net neutrality and in the past had said it was a brake on innovation. Net neutrality is dead. However, the bill has yet to be voted on in the House. Supporters of net neutrality argue the regulations blocked internet providers from slowing down content from rival sites or services, and kept them from charging more for bandwidth-heavy streaming services like Netflix (NFLX).

As chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai spearheaded the repeal of the agency's net-neutrality rules.

"Today, the Trump Administration has set into motion the destruction of the free and open Internet", she claimed.

The setback is doing little to quell the enthusiasm of net neutrality advocates, who have been rallying around efforts to implement similar rules at the state level.

As you surf the internet, you might not notice anything different. A third rule banned the practice of paid prioritization, or the offering of the Internet "fast lanes".

Washington and OR now have their own net neutrality laws, and a bill is pending in California's legislature.
