FCC Chairman Ajit Pai proposes $500 million for rural broadband push

"In either instance, we will continue to challenge the order in the courts".

We may need to wait for the full report to find out why the FCC thinks deployment stalled, and it's not clear exactly when the report will come out.

NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman, who is leading the multi-state lawsuit, said it is illegal for the FCC to make "arbitrary and capricious" changes to policies like net neutrality.

Likewise, Public Knowledge, a public interest group with a focus on telecommunication policy and internet law, filed a protective petition in DC on Tuesday.

The fact sheet and Chairman Pai's commentary also get a few hits in regarding the recent decision to roll back the 2015 net neutrality rules, but they aren't very substantial. "It has pushed technology forward in more ways than one".

However, if net neutrality does become a campaign issue with young voters in the 2018 elections, as some Democrats hope, they could use Republicans' "no" votes on restoring net neutrality rules to their advantage.

The first hearing of the Special Committee on Net Neutrality and Consumer Protection is scheduled for 11 a.m. on February 6 in Room 437 of the State House.

Said Netflix, in a company tweet: "We're disappointed in the decision to gut #NetNeutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity & civic engagement".

One more Republican Senator vote is needed for the resolution to take place, according to. Net neutrality has made it possible for popular platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to emerge and thrive. While more than 80 House Democrats have signed on to support a CRA companion bill so far, 218 signatures are required to send it to the floor for vote - bypassing House Speaker Paul Ryan, who does not support net neutrality.

The lawsuit was filed this week by attorneys general in 22 states. Net neutrality allows consumers to access online content without any interference by an internet service provider (ISP). The Obama FCC also said that everyone should have access to both fixed Internet and mobile Internet service, not just one or the other.

Save the Internet is a website that informs the public about net neutrality. That means the state would use net neutrality as a condition in state contracts, cable franchise agreements and the agreements that let companies place wireless broadband equipment on utility poles. If that principle is removed - with only some content and services available or with roadblocks inserted by ISPs to throttle or control certain services - the value and impact of that resource can be impaired or destroyed. The FCC or a court may accept this order or require us and others to refile at a later date.

Kenya Fanini-Lemoine, a senior architecture student at FAMU, said that she believes net neutrality has done great things for society. Our filing is preliminary in some respects, as the shot clock for filing appeals is settled. The FCC's new rules are not expected to go into effect until later this spring. 706 Broadband Deployment report.
