Inslee promises state action on net neutrality protections

The rules were originally approved in 2015 under Obama-appointed FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, and were designed with the intention of creating a level playing field on the internet by preventing internet service providers from slowing down, blocking or charging more for certain types of content.

The letter was also signed by 117 other House Democrats.

Congressman Mike Doyle (D-PA) said on Tuesday, "All you have to do is look at what went on over the last 10 or 15 years to see how the [internet service providers] repeatedly sought to crush potential competitors and challenged the FCC's previous net neutrality rules in court to understand why the Open Internet Order was needed - and to see what will happen if the Open Internet Order is repealed". "To truly make good on the remarkable democratic potential of the internet, the fundamental infrastructure underpinning it all must be neutral and nondiscriminatory".

What's at stake? Your right to freedom of expression and access to information. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the FCC would "return the internet to a consumer-driven marketplace free of innovation-stifling regulations".

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which advocates for a free and open internet, has stripped the rhetoric from the FCC's argument and exposed it for what it really is - just another naked power grab by the monopolies that drive all of us batty with their services.

The FCC's move to end net neutrality has been overall ill-received, and one major player in the FCC office has even come forward to denounce Pai's plan, according to Politico.

WHNT spoke to deans of the school in regards to net neutrality and they weren't able to comment.

He supports Pai's plan, arguing net neutrality is holding the internet back. "I was shocked and dismayed that comments allegedly written by me and misrepresenting my views were submitted to the FCC without my knowledge or consent", said Irene Racz of Montpelier.

There's a reason why most Americans despise the cable company.

The data comes from a site set up by NY state but available to all Americans where they can enter their name to see if comments were submitted on their behalf.
