Net neutrality repeal: Now what?

Net Neutrality Vote

Mark Hamill and Ted Cruz Get in Net Neutrality-Related Twitter Fight

In addition, the absence of net neutrality rules will threaten Korea's internet business industry by hampering innovation, while driving away startups seeking to bring next-generation internet content and services to the local market, the agency said.

Meanwhile, multiple state attorneys general have threatened lawsuits to block the FCC's order. He's making his argument for repealing net neutrality rules by donning a Santa Claus suit, wielding a fidget spinner and a toy gun, wearing eclipse glasses, being silly. "There isn't that much case law about when the FCC pre-empts states and when it doesn't", he said. "Congress", said Senator Ed Markey who, along with more than a dozen other lawmakers, promised to introduce legislation to overturn the FCC vote.

Pai singled out companies that provide services dependent on fast service, such as those that perform remote health monitoring of people with serious illnesses, as potential beneficiaries of the repeal. The courts blocked the first two attempts, but the FCC ultimately succeeded in 2015 by labeling broadband a utility - a legal classification that provided the FCC broader oversight powers.

He also said there was no indication officials in Indonesia or Vietnam had been involved in the attempted coal sales. Investigations are continuing and further charges against the man have not been ruled out.

Rep. Kim Kyoung-tae of the main opposition Liberal Korea Party said during a National Assembly meeting last month that "net neutrality was an appropriate regulatory framework for a time of government-led ICT infrastructure development, and is now unfitting for the new 5G era", according to local media reports. And T-Mobile (TMUS) past year made it cheaper for its users to stream certain video services - notably after the stricter net neutrality rules were in place.

As if consumers weren't already paying enough, some experts are saying the price of the internet could go up a lot more, especially after this week's vote by the FCC to dismantle net neutrality.
