United States overturns net neutrality rules aimed at ensuring free, open web

16 December 2017

During Obama's presidency, the FCC voted in net neutrality by classifying internet providers as Title II common carriers. The vote was 3-2, with Republicans on the FCC board carrying the majority.

So far, at least two Attorneys General have announced intentions to file suit over the repeal.

A group of almost 20 state attorneys general asked the FCC to delay the vote until the issue of fake comments is addressed.

Despite comments from millions of Americans who spoke out in favor of the protections, Pai did not mention the widespread opposition to net neutrality in his order to repeal the rules. The principle formerly served to ensure that internet service providers would not have the ability to block any content or throttle specific sites. And so the open internet as we know it could change. Basically, net neutrality gives people equal access to all websites, as long as it isn't illegal dark web content.

"We are 5-0 against the Trump Administration because they often fail to follow the law when taking executive action", Mr. Ferguson said in a statement. Chairman Pai explained that repealing the rules will lead to a "better, faster, cheaper internet", freeing internet service providers from being micromanaged by bureaucrats.

Below is a roundup of all the celebrity rage over the FCC's vote.

Twitch CEO Emmett Shear said in a statement that, "Without [net neutrality], we might not be here today, and our streamers might not be here tomorrow..." The rules and regulations pertaining to it must be placed in the federal register and will likely occur at the top of the new year. "Because the public can plainly see a soon-to-be-toothless FCC is handing the keys to the Internet to a handful of multi-billion dollar corporations".

"That speaks volumes about the direction the FCC is heading", said Clyburn. "We believe the depth of your ideas should outweigh the depths of your pockets", he said. Lawyers from consumer groups were on standby, anticipating the repeal. Markey's Congressional Review Act resolution, and will take the FCC to court as needed. "It'll be just as necessary tomorrow as it is today".

Any one of these actions could hit well before the repeal actually becomes effective.
