When the world wide web was created, the internet became more advanced. Things you never knew possible became a reality. Due to its innovation, cable and broadband providers came up with procedures that could hinder accessibility because of discrimination.

The Senate officially filed a petition yesterday to compel a vote to revive net neutrality philosophies. Sen.

Thirty senators are needed to bolster the resolution to demand a vote. Democrat senators need...

It looks like Comcast chief Brian Roberts is attempting to kill net neutrality by acquiring some cable and entertainment companies. For many, he could be the state’s most compelling foe of the open internet regulations. In short, the free, unbound, and equal access to all internet contents are threatened. He acquired NBCUniversal almost ten years ago in a $30 billion deal. Now, he is poised to offer a $60 billion all-cash deal to acquire 21st Century Fox. He had...

Why is AT&T not happy that the FTC will monitor net neutrality rules? According to the new net neutrality regulations by the FCC, the Federal Trade Commission will have the authority to regulate it. Besides, telecom companies and broadband providers will be free to block and throttle contents aside from engaging in paid prioritization. However, it seems that AT&T is not happy that FTC will govern the policies. Back in 2014, the FTC filed a lawsuit...

Personal data security becomes one of the main concerns in today’s digital era. We are no longer sure if our personal data are still protected. Once we login to the internet,  we need to provide information to have an access. Once it is given out, it now becomes public property. The big question is, how safe is our information? Remembering the scandal that Facebook and Cambridge Analytica went through would make consumers think twice before...

These “red alerts” request readers and visitors to ask their respective representatives to recover net neutrality. It is a move to counter the FCC’s vote last December to dismantle the open internet. The agency wants to give their blessings to cable and broadband providers to block...

To use the Congressional Review Act is one of the ways by the dissenters of the new net neutrality rules imposed by the FCC to oppose. The reason behind is to reject the Commission’s order before it has an opportunity to take effect. As early as mid-May, Democrats in the Senate are strategizing to force the vote in the earliest time even though they are currently in short of one vote to be successful. As...
