Democrats Try to Hang Net Neutrality Vote on GOP in Midterms

Posted May 18, 2018

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) supported the FCC's net neutrality repeal and could try to prevent the Democrats' resolution from coming to a vote.

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer spoke after the vote began Wednesday, arguing that "future of the internet" is at stake. Susan Collins of ME and John Kennedy of Louisiana joined Democrats in a 52-47 vote to undo the Federal Communication Commission's repeal order.

He said the internet thrived long before the Obama administration stepped in, and he predicted that when the Trump administration's rule scrapping net neutrality goes into effect in June, consumers won't notice a change in service.

Consumer advocates cheered the Senate's vote, with many groups noting that most Americans support the Obama-era net neutrality rules. With the House firmly in Republican hands, this pro net-neutrality effort will nearly certainly stall out and die. If an internet service provider which is owned by a conglomerate decides to absorb an exchange then without net neutrality they can charge users extra and or toggle down speeds to access exchanges in competition with their own. The measure needs to win a vote in the House where Republicans have a larger majority, and to get a signature from President Donald Trump, who supports the FCC's action.

"Today, Senators on a bipartisan basis delivered passionate speeches about the importance of the internet and ensuring that consumers continue to enjoy an open and unfettered online experience".

It has been just over five months since the FCC in the United States voted to dismantle Obama-era net neutrality rules, with three out of five commissioners involved choosing to end the regulation.

The Senate resolution would overturn a vote by the agency in December to scuttle its open-internet regulations.

"The promise of an open internet is foundational to providing equitable learning opportunities to all students, not just those who can afford them", said Richard Culatta, CEO at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), in a prepared statement.

Jorge Linares vs Vasyl Lomachenko Press Conference
But the first couple rounds, with little to distinguish between either man, might have justifiably been scored for Linares. Not only was Linares taller (5-8 to 5-7) and with a longer reach (69 inches to 65½) but he appeared to be visibly heavier.

"Don't listen to the naysayers - momentum is on the side of those who favour restoring net neutrality now", she said in an email. "The big cities of this country are banding together on this issue to use the power of the purse", Nirenberg said, pointing to New York's effort to boycott providers that don't adhere to net neutrality. "At BestVPN.com, we stand side by side with companies and citizens around the world in opposition to the FCC's decision". So it's no surprise they voted to reject Ajit Pai's decision to kill the internet as we know it.

The public will get a chance to gripe about new government rules set to kick in next month on net neutrality.

The FCC has made abundantly clear that states may not impose "any so-called "economic" or "public utility-type" regulation []" on broadband services and that federal law flatly preempts such requirements.
