Council Takes First Step to Enforcing Net Neutrality in San Antonio

The US Senate votes in favour of restoring the FCC's net-neutrality rules

Wednesday the Senate voted 52-47, with all Democrats and three Republicans in the majority, to kill the FCC rule favoring a handful of large corporations and restore, as law, "net neutrality" as the internet's governing principle.

Democrats used the Congressional Review Act to force a vote - a law that allows Congress to repeal agency rules and regulations on a simple majority vote, instead of a 60-vote threshold needed to break procedural hurdles on most legislation, the kinds of traditional roadblocks where Senate leadership could typically hold up such a proposal.

The effort, which has built momentum in recent weeks, also is meant to elevate Net neutrality as a political issue in the fall elections.

"I am pleased that today the United States Senate voted in support of the entrepreneurs, small businesses, and consumers in New Hampshire and across the country who rely on a free and open internet to help them succeed", Senator Hassan said.

Cable lobby group NCTA also condemned the Senate vote-while trying to convince the public that its members support net neutrality. Earlier this year, a coalition of 23 attorneys general, including Connecticut's Attorney General George Jepsen sued to stop the rollback of net neutrality.

Sanchez explains factors behind signing of new Spurs mega deal
Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract, the club have announced. The 21-year-old full-back has penned a new deal which will run until at least 2021.

The resolution seeks to overturn a rule voted on by the FCC in December that would eliminate most of its net-neutrality regulations.

Polls have shown strong public backing for Net neutrality. If it fails, internet providers would be able to favor certain websites, by slowing them down or speeding them up. "...[O] ur light-touch approach will deliver better, faster, and cheaper Internet access and more broadband competition to the American people-something that millions of consumers desperately want and something that should be a top priority", he said in a statement. Markey (D-Mass.) said.

Last week Charter replied to these allegations by again claiming that states have no authority over them. Democrats will need at least 25 Republicans to join them in the House. Only some minor parts of the repeal took effect such as including the internet as an information service rather than a utility.

"We will take a stand to protect our online economy, or we will say goodbye to the Internet as we know it", said Sen.

And one expert has predicted that the abolition of net neutrality will see the end of an open Internet.

"This is a turning point in the movement", said Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz, according to CNET.

Net neutrality supporters remain hopeful, though. He runs the Democrats' 2018 campaign operation and says Republicans are miscalculating how much voters care about this issue.

However, the endeavor to cease abrogation of net neutrality rules as a segment of an expansive political strategy by Democrats to marshal young voters in the November elections.
