Senate Votes To Reinstate Obama-Era Net Neutrality Rules

Council Takes First Step to Enforcing Net Neutrality in San Antonio
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 Hassansaid.
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.
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.
