House vote still looms at Net Neutrality comes to an end

Posted June 13, 2018

We gather here today to mark and mourn the death of net neutrality, which, despite a valient fight and 9 million comments to the FCC, officially took its last breath on Monday.at least, if you don't live in Washington state, where, as soon net neutrality died, it was immediately reborn.

After much delay and plenty of drama, the new FCC rules voted on in that contentious meeting have gone into full effect.

Black says he's nervous the repeal of net neutrality could curb the flow of internet traffic to his website and hurt business.

"Our framework will protect consumers and promote better, faster Internet access and more competition", Paid wrote in an op-ed published on CNET on Sunday. Many Internet providers, such as AT&T and Verizon, have said they do not and will not block or slow content. Comcast has also said it does not block or slow content and has no plans to offer paid prioritization. The rules had previously prevented internet providers from charging more for some content or from giving some [paying] websites preferential treatment. The intention was to keep the internet open and fair.

But Trump's pick to run the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, called those rules "heavy-handed" and vowed to end them.

On the other side, when a mental health condition is known, men make up 69 percent and women 31 percent in suicides. The majority of suicide victims the CDC tracked in 2015-16 had no previously diagnosed mental health condition.

"Internet service providers now have the power to block websites, throttle services and censor online content", Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democratic member of the commission who voted against the repeal, said in an emailed statement to the New York Times.

Pai argues that net neutrality was part of the FCC's regulatory overreach during the Obama administration.

They can also set up "fast lanes" for preferred services - in turn, relegating everyone else to 'slow lanes'.

Net neutrality looks set to live on in piecemeal form as some U.S. states are enacting legislation that will require telecoms companies operating in their territories to abide by similar laws. Under Chairman Tom Wheeler, the FCC classified broadband internet as a Title II service, putting it in line with utilities like telephone service and electricity.

"Those "fast lanes" will put those who won't or can not pay in the slow lane, making the internet look a lot like cable TV", Sohn says.

That is, except if you live in Washington state.

Why was net neutrality repealed?

The FCC's new rules require ISPs to publicly disclose how they manage traffic, but they charge the Federal Trade Commission with handling complaints should they arise.

The Senate passed a measure to preserve the net neutrality rules last month.

To start, activists today will rally to gather support for an effort to use the Congressional Review act to reverse the FCC's repeal with a majority vote in the House and Senate.

The general uncertainty around the future of net neutrality is likely to extend through much of this year, according to those pushing for legislation and litigation, if not longer.
