Congress will vote on whether or not to bring back net neutrality

Pornhub Reddit Tumblr And 50 More Websites Are on'Red Alert Supporting Net Neutrality Vote in Congress

Landmark U.S. "net neutrality" rules will expire on June 11, and new regulations handing providers broad new power over how consumers can access the internet will take effect, the Federal Communications Commission said on Thursday in setting the date.

It comes after the United States communications regulator, the Federal Communications Commission, under the control of its Republican chairman Ajit Pai (appointed by President Donald Trump), had in December voted 3-2 to overturn Net Neutrality regulations.

"Now, on June 11, these unnecessary and harmful Internet regulations will be repealed and the bipartisan, light-touch approach that served the online world well for almost 20 years will be restored", he said.

Internet service providers will still have to provide information regarding any possible congestion management, application-specific behavior, device attachment rules, security practices, or any blocking, throttling, affiliated prioritization and paid prioritization that they do.

Pai said the Internet Freedom Order will replace net neutrality rules with strengthened transparency requirements to protect consumers.

A number of popular websites are showing a pop-up screaming "Red Alert for Net Neutrality". Moreover, an internet consumer will also be charged extra to access websites that are restricted by the FCC. Today, Chairman Ajit Pai, part of the Republican majority, said the new policy would end "the heavy-handed, utility-style regulation from 1934 of broadband Internet access service".

The letter further mentioned that the businesses along with the users need an assurance of neither paying any extra fees nor getting blocked on behalf of the service providers of the Internet. "Now everyone will be able to see the truth for themselves", he concluded.

The FCC voted in December to gut the rules.

Senate Democrats filed a petition this week to force a vote on Sen.

Proponents now have the backing of 47 Democrats and the two independents who caucus with Democrats, as well as Republican Senator Susan Collins.

If the Senate approves the measure, it would not likely pass the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH, listens to concerns raised by business leaders during a field hearing on the impact of the repeal of net neutrality on May 2 in Durham.

Although President Trump is expected to veto any such bill, Republican opposition to Net Neutrality has not been particularly vocal, with a few exceptions.
