Net neutrality rule ends Monday

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai championed the move, while commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel opposed it.

"By refusing to bring up the Senate-passed resolution to restore net neutrality, which passed the Senate by a powerful bipartisan vote, House Republican leaders gave a green light to the big ISPs to charge middle-class Americans, small business owners, schools, rural Americans, and communities of color more to use the internet", Schumer said. In other words, no speeding up, slowing down or blocking specific websites or online services.

However, in the op-ed Pai does not defend against any of the common arguments for Net Neutrality. Originally put in place by the Obama-era FCC, the regulation prevents ISPs and wireless carriers in the US from charging streaming content providers for a "fast lane" that would disseminate their media at a faster data speed and at a higher resolution than the competition.

But Trump's pick to run the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, called those rules "heavy-handed" and vowed to end them.

Under the new law, ISPs are required to disclose any blocking, throttling or prioritization of their own content or from their partners on customers' broadband connections. On Thursday, with the official repeal date looming, dozens of senators sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan urging him to schedule a vote on the issue.

"In the short term, I don't think consumers are going to see any change at all from the Internet experience they've come to cherish", Pai told The Washington Post on Friday.

For now, we are in a wait and see mode to see what happens next.

Pai has said he agrees with the concept of a "free and open" internet, but disagrees that regulating the service like phone networks is the best way to achieve that goal.

"In the House, we'll need 218 lawmakers to sign on to a "discharge petition" in order to force a vote past leadership to the floor", the coalition's website outlines. The Senate last month passed a Congressional Review Act measure 52-47 aiming to overturn the 2017 measure (the CRA is a quick way to overturn newly-passed regulations within 60 legislative days of passage).

"Today, the Trump Administration has set into motion the destruction of the free and open Internet", she claimed. "This misguided decision awoke a sleeping giant, because the American public is demanding action". This coming Monday, June 11th, net neutrality is scheduled to be phased out.

Organizations that fought to preserve net neutrality say the battle isn't over.
