There are a few states that are battling the repeal of net neutrality within their own governments, both NY and Washington have already passed legislation that stops or discourages internet providers from favoring content. California is now in the process of passing a similar law, which will give users stricter protections that those under the Obama Era net neutrality rules. Obama-era federal regulations prevented Internet providers from slowing, blocking or charging websites special fees to get their content in front of users. The idea was to keep the internet open and uncensored.
The order required the approval of the Office of Management and Budget, which the FCC announced receiving last month.
The concern among net neutrality advocates is that the repeal could give internet providers too much control over how online content is delivered. Despite efforts from state officials and members of Congress, there will now be fewer rules governing how Internet providers can operate.
Pai has said he agrees with the concept of a "free and open" internet, but disagrees that regulating the service like phone networks is the best way to achieve that goal.
"Those "fast lanes" will put those who won't or can not pay in the slow lane, making the internet look a lot like cable TV", Sohn says.Читайте также: Donald Trump Says That Melania Had a ‘Big Operation’
In an opinion piece published on CNET, Mr Pai in the many years of net growth before the neutrality rules "Facebook, Amazon, and Google went from small start-ups to global tech giants". That decision goes into effect Monday, shifting the authority for policing the broadband industry to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
The California state Senate passed a net neutrality bill on Wednesday. Per the net neutrality order, states can not enact any legislation that attempts to circumvent the repeal.
In May, congress overturned the repeal with a bipartisan vote in the Senate.
While it seems inevitable that net neutrality will end tomorrow, not much will likely happen at first.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
