I'm not sure that really has anything to do with net neutrality. You didn't state that it did, but I'm just throwing that out there as well.

Yeah probably a coincidence being just 2 days before the vote and all.

Not giving them a pass but it just seems like inflation of prices like they usually do. It’s just being announced because of the timing to make it sound like it’s a bigger ordeal than it really is. Sucky either way.

Buuut... with the significantly lower corporate taxes for next year, rates should drop, right? Or will that money go to workers and stockholders. Hmm...we’ll see.

Democrats are just one vote shy of restoring net neutrality

The Senate effort to undo the FCC's repeal order is close, but faces an uphill battle.




Joshua Roberts / Reuters


Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer now says Democrats in the Senate are a single vote away from restoring net neutrality. According to the senator from New York, they now have a total of 50 votes for a Senate resolution of disapproval that would restore the Open Internet Order of 2015 and deliver a stiff rebuke to Ajit Pai and other Republican members of the FCC. It would also prevent the agency from passing a similar measure in the future, all but guaranteeing Net Neutrality is permanently preserved.




Right now the resolution has the support of all 49 Democrats in the Senate and one Republican, Susan Collins of Maine. But Schumer and the rest of the caucus will have to win over one more Republican vote to prevent Vice President Mike Pence from breaking tie and allowing the repeal to stand.
Under the Congressional Review Act the Senate has 60 days to challenge a decision by an independent agency like the FCC. With less than 30 days left to go, Democrats will have to move quick to convince a "moderate" like John McCain or Lindsey Graham to buck their party. Of course, considering the public outcry that preceded and followed the reversal, it's not impossible. But it's still an uphill battle for supporters of net neutrality.

Hell yeah, get it done!

All of my republican representatives in the house sent me the same canned FCC approved "obama heavy handed regulation" bullshit so it appears that this has pretty well fallen on party lines which is just disgusting.

Same on the MO side. It's good to know who they actually work for though.

I get that the obama administration did have a lot of regulation and some of it was not needed at all but this is 1 of the good things he had. I really do think that they need to get this taken care of. This is 1 republican who feels that ajit and the fcc messed up.

If representatives would actually represent the the people who elected them, this would be back yesterday.

Senate Will Vote On Net Neutrality This Wednesday

Net Neutrality has been one of the biggest issues in the tech sphere for quite some time, and now the United States Senate is poised to take a vote on whether to reverse the FCC’s repeal of the Obama-era internet protections on Wednesday, May 16. The vote is certainly not the end-all-be-all of the fight over Net Neutrality; even if the measure to reverse the repeal makes it through the Senate, it will have a harder time in the House of Representatives, which currently holds a large Republican majority. The issue got through the FCC on party lines, and has since been a cleanly divided battle between the two sides with very few stragglers. If it somehow gets through the House, it still has to face down President Donald Trump’s pen, and he technically has the final say on whether to approve or veto the measure.


Currently, the battle over Net Neutrality is being fought on many fronts. This vote is one of the more sweeping stages of the fight, but individual states have been challenging the FCC’s authority to enforce a clause barring them from putting their own Net Neutrality laws in place. Of these fighter states, California’s proposed legislation is the strictest, surpassing the original federal guideline it’s meant to replace. New York picked up a variant of the bill. Even if Wednesday’s vote or a future step fails, individual states enacting their own laws will continue the fight. Those states, however, could face challenges; no shortage of Net Neutrality opposition has stepped up and vowed to fight those states’ efforts, even to the point of suing them.

The FCC got a new chairman shortly after Donald Trump took the office of President, and that chairman, Ajit Pai, went on an immediate attack against the Obama Administration’s Title II Net Neutrality protections. When he eventually repealed them, it was an extremely controversial move made possible by a 3 to 2 Republican majority among FCC commissioners, and the backlash since then has been unceasing and unflinching. To say that this issue is divisive is arguably quite the understatement, and even if protections are put in place on way or another, they could end up torn down in the near future by proponents of giving ISPs more freedom to shape their services as they please. BestVPN expert Sean McGrath expects this future, calling these events “the beginning of the end” for a free and open web.

Senate Votes to Save Net Neutrality, Proving Shame Still Works Sometimes


In a monumental decision that will resonate through election season, the U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted 52-47 to reinstate the net neutrality protections the Federal Communications Commission decided to repeal last December.
For months, procedural red tape has delayed the full implementation of the FCC’s decision to drop Title II protections that prevent internet service providers from blocking or throttling online content. Last week, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai confirmed that the repeal of the 2015 Open Internet Order would go into effect on June 11. But Democrats put forth a resolution to use its power under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to review new regulations by federal agencies through an expedited legislative process.


Under the CRA, only a simple majority is needed to pass legislation. With Republican Senator John McCain currently hospitalized and all Democrats on board, only a single Republican needed to vote in favor of restoring net neutrality rules. However, Senators Susan Collins, Joe Kennedy, and Lisa Murkowski all broke from their GOP colleagues and ensured that the resolution passed.
Initial remarks this morning kicked off with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying that “this resolution takes us in the wrong direction,” and insisting that it’s a partisan attempt to drum up a campaign issue. (That last part is actually true.) McConnell didn’t address any specifics about why he opposes the FCC net neutrality protections. Republican Senator Roger Wicker also voiced his opposition and expressed hope that senators would instead vote for watered-down legislation that Senator John Thune, a Republican who has received nearly $1 million in donationsfrom the telecom industry, introduced on the floor today.
Democrats focused on rebutting falsehoods and highlighting specific issues that are affected by net neutrality. Senator Marie Cantwell knocked down the lie that net neutrality protections slowed down investment in networks. This conservative talking point has been the foundation of the argument against Title II classification for ISPs. Cantwell told the room:
In the year following the rule that went into place, the entire industry shows that the total capital expenditures increased by more than $550 million above the previous year’s investment. For example, in [its] 2017 earnings report, Comcast, the nation’s largest broadband provider, noted that its capital expenditures increased 7.5 percent—nine-billion dollars—and that it continued to make deployments on platforms like the X1 and wireless gateways. Likewise, AT&T spent $22 billion on capital investments of $20 billion from the previous year. In fact, 2016 represents the industry’s highest single year jump in broadband network investment since 1999.
Other Democrats spoke at length about how important net neutrality is for local news, emergency response, rural users, and the economically poor, as well as small businesses. Senator Ron Wyden emphasized that the end of net neutrality will have a direct impact on consumers and the services they choose to use like online video streaming and video games. “There is no vote that this body is going to take in 2018 that will have a more direct impact on the wallets of Americans than the one is going to happen in a few hours,” Wyden insisted.
Senator Collins was already on board in the lead up to today’s vote, but Kennedy and Murkowski were both undecided as recently as Tuesday. Net neutrality activists like Fight for the Future launched a pressure campaign urging the two senators’ constituents to demand they vote yes on the CRA measure. By all appearances, the campaign worked. Kennedy’s vote came as a bit of surprise because in March he introduced legislation that was clearly the work of big telecom lobbyists. The bill still allowed ISPs to provide paid prioritization services and other loopholes that still amount to internet fast lanes and don’t preserve the fundamental net neutrality principle that all traffic on the internet should be treated equally.
In the past several months, ISPs have pushed hard to jam a net neutrality bill through Congress that would pay lip service to the fundamental guidelines the Obama-era rules put in place. But activists have warnedthat complicated Frankenstein legislation that makes it through this Republican-controlled Congress is unlikely to include the firm prohibition of throttling, blocking, or paid-prioritization of web traffic. Further, overturning legislation is far more difficult than overturning federal agency rules.
The CRA isn’t used very often, but Republicans did successfully employ the procedure last year to repeal FCC rules that prevented ISPs from selling users’ browsing data without their consent. Still, today’s vote means the proposal will have to go the House where Democrats will need to convince 25 Republicans to support net neutrality in order for the measure to pass—and they have until January of next year to do it. The viper pit of morons in that chamber will likely get distracted by Diamond and Silk or some shit before they ever get close to a positive vote.

Still, we’ve seen Republicans willing to bend to pressure with today’s vote, and it proves that activism is working. As the midterm elections get closer and Representatives get hammered on taking a position that polling shows 86 percent of Americans oppose, we could see things turn around fast.
