Director Francis Ford Coppola weighs in on preserving net neutrality
19 May, 2017, 19:00
Democrats are outnumbered in Washington, and that may leave them little leverage to stop Republicans intent on dismantling net neutrality rules that were a signature Obama-era regulation.
The public will now be able to comment on the FCC's proposal.
Net Neutrality rules are dead or at least will be really, really soon. He and his fellow Republican on the FCC, Mike O'Rielly, voted for the rules' review, while Democrat Mignon Clyburn voted against it. "We were not living in a digital dystopia".
"The FCC that year succumbed to partisan pressure from the White House and changed course", Pai claimed. The rules imposed new regulatory burdens on ISPs both large and small, he said. The NPRM proposes to reinstate the determination that mobile broadband is not a commercial mobile service, but a private mobile service (which like an information service is not subject to common carrier regulation). Clybum was not alone in fighting for the net neutrality rules, however, as a group of protesters stood just outside the FCC offices to fight for the right to open the internet.
"This is the beginning of the process, not the end", Pai said.
Addressing reports of bots in the commenting system, Pai urged commenters to participate in an "honest and forthright way".
"The FCC proposes to return to the bipartisan framework that preserved a flourishing free and open Internet for nearly 20 years", the agency said in a statement. The FCC closed an investigation into whether such zero-rating is harmful last month.
While Pai titled his plan, "Restoring Internet Freedom", Clyburn's dissenting statement gave it the alternate name, "Destroying Internet Freedom".
Classification of Mobile Broadband: The NPRM also proposes revisiting the classification of mobile broadband under Section 332 of the Communications Act, which separately provides a regulatory framework for mobile wireless services. He delivered a scathing rebuke of the plans, calling it "a hollow theory of trickle-down internet economics" that "contains ideological interpretive whiplash".
Stocks of major Internet providers rose on May 18.
The FCC voted Thursday to start rolling back Title II. The majority of public filings submitted to the FCC's website support keeping net neutrality rules, according to Fortune. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) has said to expect that total to be minuscule compared with this time around, and Schatz was clearly looking for the flood as well.
The voting ended 2-1 in favor of trashing the net neutrality rules.
The Donald Trump-appointee was still a commissioner of the FCC when he first expressed his disfavor for the ruling. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) said. The ad did not include any promise to avoid charging websites for prioritized access to consumers, an activity that net neutrality supporters say would place online services into "fast lanes" and "slow lanes".
Providers insist they will not engage in blocking or throttling even in the absence of rules, but critics are sceptical. For some Americans, the greatest concern is meddling by internet service providers, and for others it is unelected bureaucrats attempting to "overprotect" Americans from products and services they actually like.
The federal agency also agrees to repeal the "general conduct" rule which allows the agency to probe business practices of ISPs that it suspects might be anti-competitive.
