Thread: Is Net Neutrality Dead?

  1. #101
    When you think "state's rights," you don't usually think Democrat. But that is exactly what is saving net neutrality in practice
    https://qz.com/1721633/us-net-neutra...-up-saving-it/

    This victory for the telecoms industry may have just actually delivered them into a hell they’ve tried to avoid for decades: a balkanized regulatory landscape even more restrictive than the one they just escaped. In its repeal, the FCC preempted states from imposing their own net neutrality laws. “No dice,” the majority opinion responded. If the US government chooses to abdicate regulatory authority, the judges argued, it can’t simultaneously take that authority from states.
    The epic ruling, which runs nearly 200 pages (and is still subject to appeal) not only allows states to re-regulate the internet as they wish (34 states have passed or proposed regulation to do so), but it appears to have invalidated lot of federal laws tied to treating the internet as a telecom service not an information service as it is now defined.
    ...ISPs would face a costly war on multiple fronts with left-leaning states such as New York, New Jersey, and California empowered to impose even stricter standards on ISPs such as the California Consumer Privacy Act due to go into effect January 2020.

    LOL. That article is from 2017, so not hardly. But when Bernie wants to break them up, shed no tears.

    ISP pledge to not enforce data caps ending
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/data-caps...120203214.html

    Coronavirus has put them in an hard spot.

    Meanwhile, internet providers’ boasts about their ability to handle all this extra traffic leave them in a politically awkward spot.

    “We saw the usage go up significantly, and the broadband industry collectively slapped itself on the shoulder about how well they did here,” Entner said. “Going back and saying we need to do this, we don’t have enough capacity – which one is it?”
