  • United States Senate Votes To Restore Net Neutrality

    3 monthes ago - By Android Headlines

    The United States Senate voted today in favor of reinstating Net Neutrality regulations, and essentially voting against the recent repeal of those regulations by the Federal Communications Commission under current chairperson, Ajit Pai. The vote, which was largely led by Democrats is now being seen as a win by supporters of net neutrality, although in reality it remains to be seen as to how much it will impact on the current situation.
    The current vote was brought forward through the use of the Congressional Review Act which primarily acts to voice a clear and loud disapproval of actions...

    But resolution requires passage in House and Trump's signature - an unlikely outcome before FCC's repeal goes into effect in June Advocates for net neutrality won a symbolic victory Wednesday when the Senate voted 52-47 to preserve Obama-era regulations that require internet service providers to treat all web traffic equally. But the resolution also requires passage by the Republican-controlled House and Donald Trump's signature to be enacted - an unlikely outcome before the Federal Communications Commission's repeal of net neutrality rules goes into effect next month.

    Senator John Thune is the patron saint of bullshit and his remarks on net neutrality are lies

    3 monthes ago - By The Next Web

    Senator John Thune is an asshole. You'll have to pardon my profanity, but the most transparent scam in US political history is unfolding in front of us and it's difficult to parse information coming out of the post-truth world that Washington D.C. has become. Let me start over: The US Senate today voted 52-47 in favor of a Congressional Review Act to rescind the repeal of net neutrality. But according to Senator John Thune, if it were to miraculously make it to the House (which is likely to simply refuse to hear it) and even more incredulously pass there, it will...

    United States Senate Votes To Save Net Neutrality

    3 monthes ago - By GameInformer

    In December of last year, the FCC led by Ajit Pai voted to end net neutrality, a regulation in place that prevents internet providers from prioritizing content on the internet for faster speeds or data access. Today, the Senate voted to reinstate those protections in a 52-47 vote.
    President Trump made eliminating net neutrality a priority when he selected Ajit Pai as FCC chairman, but has long been an opponent of the regulation. Congress, however, is empowered to codify those Title II protections to prevent ISPs from throttling or blocking content. While the FCC voted to repeal those...

  • After Senate victory, House announces plans to force its own vote on net neutrality

    Hot on the heels of a surprising 52-47 Senate disapproval of the FCC's new, weaker net neutrality rules, the House of Representatives will soon attempt to force a similar vote under the Congressional Review Act. Representative Mike Doyle announced in a statement and at a press conference following the Senate vote that he will begin the process first thing tomorrow morning.
    “I have introduced a companion CRA in the house,” Rep. Doyle said, “but I'm also going to begin a discharge petition which we will have open for signature tomorrow morning. And I urge every member who's uproots a free...

    If you were a bit cynical about the US Senate's vote to save net neutrality today, we can't really blame you. With senators and representatives all too willing to vote along party lines, the odds are certainly stacked against this effort by Democrats in Congress to block the FCC's “Restoring Internet Freedom Order.” It appears, however, that your cynicism was...
