Net neutrality rollback: FCC chairman Ajit Pai responds to critics

12 Juin, 2018, 02:03 | Auteur: Auguste Feret
  • It's 4th and 40 for net neutrality supporters in Congress as House is short of the votes needed to bring up the CRA motion

"And under the Federal Communications Commission's Restoring Internet Freedom Order, which takes effect Monday, the internet will be just such an open platform". Here's what you need to know.

Today marks the official first day of a Net Neutrality-free America.

"At the dawn of the commercial Internet, President [Bill] Clinton and a Republican Congress agreed on a light-touch framework to regulating the Internet". "Hold the obituaries. Net neutrality is not dead", Fight for the Future Deputy Director Evan Greer said in a statement.

Happening today: Rules that prevented internet providers (like Comcast) from slowing or speeding up service to some sites (like Netflix) are no longer in effect. A third rule banned the practice of paid prioritization, or the offering of the Internet "fast lanes".

Q. Why are the rules going away? This, according to Pai, "will allow consumers to make an informed decision about which Internet service provider is best for them".

Q. What's the impact of the repeal? "I would love to have one uniform, robust federal standard protecting net neutrality, but given that the FCC has left a void, the states have to fill it". Under the new policy, a violation might occur when regulators find out that an Internet provider has been blocking websites without saying so. His order, touted as promoting investment and broadband deployment, loosens the FCC's regulation of ISPs, and instead gives the Federal Trade Commission jurisdiction to enforce violations. The measure has since moved to the House, where it's already garnered support from more than 175 Democrats.

This certainly will boost the morale of footballing clubs in India and hopefully, we will qualify for a World Cup soon. Despite his dissatisfaction, Renard stressed that his team is ready for the World Cup in Russian Federation .

Q. Is my Internet service about to slow to a crawl, like some activists claim? In that country, a powerful alliance between the central government and national telecom companies has created a digital dystopia, where websites and online services that fall out of favor load so slowly as to render them unusable. But the companies can't simply promise one thing and blatantly do another, at least not without risking FTC litigation.

"The public is outraged and fighting tooth and nail to get Congress to overrule the FCC - and it's likely that that will happen before ISPs can do too much damage", Greer said.

Q. Yes, finally! What's an example? But what is net neutrality, and what does its repeal mean for you? The Senate already passed a historic bipartisan resolution disapproving the repeal.

Q. What are its chances in the House? With the June 11 date approaching, several senators asked House Speaker Paul Ryan to schedule a vote on the issue. Here's what we can expect from tomorrow's internet. And consumer groups note that should the FCC repeal survive the looming lawsuits, the end result won't be pretty for American consumers.

But net neutrality supporters say that without the rules, the industry will be able to wield an alarming amount of influence over the internet. According to the National Council of State Legislatures, governors in six states - New Jersey, New York, Montana, Rhode Island, Vermont and Hawaii - have signed executive orders upholding net neutrality, and three - Washington, Vermont and OR - have enacted legislation that does so.
