Repeal of 'net neutrality' Internet protections takes effect today
13 June 2018, 06:42 | Casey Mitchell
The Federal Communications Commission repealed the 2015 Obama administration's landmark net neutrality rules in December by a 3-2 vote, sparking a firestorm of criticism on social media websites, opposition from internet firms like Facebook Inc (FB.O) and Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), and protests among Democrats in the Republican-controlled Congress.
"The gutting of net neutrality is a symbol of our broken democracy", said consumer group Fight for the Future. The house bill passed in February by a 93-5 vote.
Washington's net neutrality rule casts enforcement as a provision of consumer protection in an attempt to avoid stepping into federal telecommunications statutes. OR followed in Washington's footsteps in April, passing its own net neutrality law. "Now the House must do the same".
A local business owner is aggravated over the repeal of net neutrality, which means internet providers now have the ability to slow down particular websites, or speed up connections for customers willing to pay more. The measure passed 52-47 as three Republicans joined 49 Democrats in voting to pass the measure.
MSU student Ryan Kiggans said he's not only frustrated by the potential of paying to get more information, he's also upset by whom these decisions are made: namely the FCC.
Upon receiving the order last month, FCC Chairman Ajit Painoted that removing net neutrality would be the end of burdensome internet regulations.
But only time will tell if the latest decision will lead to the slow death of the open internet as we know it - or whether the predictions have been too drastic. "Consumers want an open Internet".
Content providers like Netflix are in direct competition with Comcast, which owns NBC Universal and controls access to the internet for over 20 million customers.
Pai calls the FTC the "nation's premier consumer protection agency". Under a new plan, the Federal Trade Commission will police the ISPs. Washington's Gov. Inslee said at the signing in March, "The states have a full right to protect their citizens".
Under the rules, internet providers such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast had to treat all traffic equally.
A group representing major cable companies and TV networks said Monday that "despite a new round of outlandish claims and doomsday predictions from groups dedicated to stoking political controversy, consumers will be able to see for themselves that their internet service will keep working as always has and will keep getting better". State officials, members of Congress, technology companies and various advocacy groups are still pushing to save the rules through legislation and litigation.
The IIA issued a statement of support for today's decision, calling it "the right decision" for consumers, investors, and "for the internet itself, as the internet will once again be subject to the rules under which it grew and flourished for almost 20 years".
"June 11 is significant because it will be the first time in the over 15 year battle over net neutrality that the FCC will have essentially no role in preserving an open internet and overseeing the broadband market", said Gigi Sohn, a counselor to former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler.
"But as grateful as we are for the Commission's action and today's implementation, we can not rest here".
