Net neutrality rescindment has started on Monday. People are expecting the changes right away but have not felt it yet. The big question is, why is the agency prolonging the agony? The FFC said that filibustering is important in the net neutrality rescindment. This is because the Office of Management and Budget must renounce on the current net neutrality laws substitute. The agency called it “transparency” obligation for ISPs. After the OMB has certified the new...

A coalition of more than a hundred mayors took on a pledge to consider ISPs responsible for the open internet offenses. The pledge is known as the Cities Open Internet Pledge. This is in answer to the FCC’s decision to repeal net neutrality in December. Mayors Bill de Blasio (NY),  Steve Adler (Austin), and Ted Wheeler (Portland) pledge that that cities will decline business with ISPs that oppose the net neutrality guidelines. They started the Cities Open...

The FCC should have thought a million times before deciding to kill net neutrality. The net neutrality rules nullification is already in progress. Different US states have enacted their own rules while others are still struggling to get theirs legislated. Washington and Oregon are the states that already set up their laws to protect their localities. Vermont is the latest state to get that cloverleaf. It passed the House and the Senate committee. Currently, the bill is...

The Open Internet Order has been abolished which put smiles on FCC, Republicans, and ISPs’ faces from ear to ear. It may seem though, but the statute-making arguments are still up for grabs. For both net neutrality and online privacy regulation, there is still an open question.  Who should regulate ISPs – the FTC or the FCC? The Republicans chose FTC to control ISPs privacy procedures. It is by way of a congressional declaration lifting the FCC...

Small businesses are getting themselves involved in the case of net neutrality. And for a good number of reasons, they should be. The Fight for the Future is a net neutrality advocate group that supports small entrepreneurs. They will pursue the restoration of the open internet together with a Senate statutory endeavor. This is to neutralize the FCC’s repeal of rules contrary to blocking, throttling, and preferred pricing. According to FFTF (net neutrality advocate), at least...

Many believe that net neutrality is already dead or so it seems. The repeal took place on Monday which ISPs considered as “Victory Day.” Net neutrality might have been dead, but it will soon rise from the dead. The FCC and its henchmen just wait and see. The rules that govern the 2015 Open Internet Order has now been changed. That is because Ajit Pai and his agency voted to gut it along with cable and...

The day of the dismantling of net neutrality has arrived. Fortunately, not the entire new rules will take place. The Electronic Frontier Foundation found out that only a handful of minimal transformations will be carried out. The order needs the Office of Management and Budget’s approval to implement it as a whole. The FCC will proclaim in the Federal Register once the open internet rule is totally invalidated. At the moment, there is still no...
