"Today's bipartisan vote to reinstate net neutrality is critical to promoting innovation, supporting our hard-working people, and encouraging economic growth - and it would not have been possible without the energy and passion of all those who contacted their elected representatives and made their voices heard". The potential full support of all Democrats would still see the need for 22 Republicans to agree in order for this to happen, which many United States analysts view as a tall order.
"I think people realize how critical net neutrality is to consumers, to young companies", Markey said.
The exceptional triumph for Democrats is definitely short lived with a homogenous resolution anticipated to terminate in the house where Republicans have prodigious majority.
Democrats used the Congressional Review Act to force a vote - a law that allows Congress to repeal agency rules and regulations on a simple majority vote, instead of a 60-vote threshold needed to break procedural hurdles on most legislation, the kinds of traditional roadblocks where Senate leadership could typically hold up such a proposal.
Supporters portrayed themselves as defenders of the rights of Americans to unfettered access to the Internet by keeping protections in place that they said would prevent telecommunications companies from serving as gatekeepers for online content. "Net neutrality protected everyone. that era, the era of an open Internet, will unfortunately soon come to an end".
The 52-47 vote, which saw three Republicans vote against their own side, used the Congressional Review Act - one of the checks and balances specifically created to fix problems caused by government agencies headed up by people who think they cool, but they not.
The FCC had said that the net neutrality protection will end on 11 June. Yesterday's vote included three Republicans, including Susan Collins of Maine.
The FCC in December repealed rules set under Democratic President Barack Obama that barred internet service providers from blocking or slowing access to content or charging consumers more for certain content. "This is a huge momentum creator, especially with three Republican votes". Tech giants such as Google and Facebook have been vocal in their support for the retention of the rules.
"This is our chance, our best chance to make sure the internet stays accessible and affordable to all Americans", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
Prior to the vote Senator Hassan spoke on the floor of the Senate, reinforcing the importance of protecting a free and open internet so that all hard-working Granite Staters and businesses across the country can thrive.
Democrats argued the new FCC rules give too much power to internet service providers, which they fear will throttle down speeds for some websites and services while ramping it up for others who pay more.
