If you're just tuning into this mess, the Republican-dominated FCC just killed the net neutrality rule. The Washington Post piece is fair-minded, to be sure, but it's worth noting that nothing can truly be known on this score until FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's repeal of net neutrality rules goes into effect.
Washington became the first state to pass its own laws governing Net neutrality, countering the US government's repeal of national regulations preventing Internet service providers from blocking or throttling content. "It allows a student in Washington to connect to researchers all around the world, or a small business to compete with large businesses in the global marketplace".
Under the new law, service providers are also required to disclose information about their management practices, performance and commercial terms. The idea is that by requiring broadband companies to provide more transparency around how they handle traffic on their networks, the public will be able to know if their ISPs are "throttling", or slowing, certain types of Web traffic.
Washington isn't the only state taking such action, even if it's the first to see it through to the finish line. Other states, such as California and Washington, have cast a much wider net with bills created to effectively restore several net neutrality regulations for ISPs serving state agencies, businesses, and consumers alike.
Indeed we do. Keep up this important fight. Internet service providers had also lobbied the Legislature not to pass the bill, arguing consumer protections could be enforced by a separate national agency, the Federal Trade Commission. The states' objectives were to block a federal rollback of Obama-era net neutrality rules.
We look forward to the day when net neutrality is no longer an issue at all, but rather simply settled and accepted law that everyone agrees with.
