All Senate Democrats endorse resolution on net neutrality change
17 January 2018, 02:09 | Francis Delgado
The lawsuit, brought in front of the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, asks the court to determine that the FCC's repeal is "arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion" under the law. But before you bemoan the end of net neutrality, a last minute war is being wagered in the Senate and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) now says Democrats in the Senate are a single vote away from restoring net neutrality.
"A free and open internet drives innovation, economic growth, and consumer choice", said California Atty. As home to countless start-ups and technology giants alike, California knows this better than anywhere else. The 2015 decision had imposed the concept of "Net Neutrality", which required broadband internet service providers to treat all data equally and prohibited them from discriminating or charging fees differently based on factors related to the user, the content, or the platform.
Just to make sure it has a dog in the race to overturn the FCC's net neutrality regulation rollback in court, Public Knowledge has filed a "protective petition", asking a federal court to review the FCC's Restoring Internet Freedom Order.
"By repealing these rules, the FCC changed the so-called "internet of things" to the internet of kings", Miller said in the release. If the Democrats can get one more vote from the other side of the aisle, it would be a slap in the face to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, appointed to the post by Trump. Earlier this month, Republican Senator Susan Collins said she would back the effort to overturn the FCC's move. But the resolution would probably run into difficulties in the House, where Republicans have a much bigger majority.
A spokeswoman for the FCC declined to comment on the lawsuit.
They argued the tougher oversight led to reduced investment in broadband networks - a point net neutrality supporters dispute.
"However, in repealing the net neutrality rules, the FCC ignored consumers' strong support for a free and open internet", said Attorney General Becerra.
The FCC's 3-2 vote on December 14 eliminated the utility-like oversight of internet service providers in favor of mostly market forces. And every consumer has a right to access online content without interference or manipulation by their internet service provider.
