New York Democrats Vow to Fight FCC Plan to Repeal Net Neutrality

New York attorney general slams the FCC for 'refusal to assist' in net neutrality investigation
For my part, I have long publicly advocated for strong net neutrality rules under the Title II of the Communications Act, and studies show that the overwhelming majority of Americans who took the time to write public comments to the FCC about the issue feel the same way while a very small minority favor repeal.
"The removal removes that uncertainty or that dark cloud over how the government regulating internet might affect us, and might affect our customers in terms of additional costs", Carroll said.
Pai's plan would require Internet service providers to disclose what they're doing, such as allowing some sites to load faster than others.
"Secondly, the Federal Trade Commission has long had authority and had authority prior to 2015 for nearly 20 years over this space", he says. Yet the process the FCC has employed to consider potentially sweeping alterations to current net neutrality rules has been corrupted by the fraudulent use of Americans' identities - and the FCC has been unwilling to assist my office in our efforts to investigate this unlawful activity.
"We're much more anxious about the opposite, that smaller players will get squeezed out by larger players who have the resources to buy what's really an acceptable level of service, and they're going to get stuck with an unacceptable level of service", Dillon said.
The comment system allows the public to weigh in on any proposed rule changes - the FCC was looking at changing net neutrality rules - and under federal law, the agency has to take those comments into consideration. We will do everything within our power to keep the internet open and accessible for all.
Following the circulation of Pai's draft order, his fellow Commissioners released separate statements regarding the matter.
If you care about the internet in any way, shape, or form, you should care about Net Neutrality.
The 210-page document bears the title "Restoring Internet Freedom", which echos the 2014 "Internet Freedom Act", a failed House bill floated on more than $800,000 in donations from USA telecom firms seeking to gut net neutrality protections. "What they are telling me is not that their ISP is blocking access to lawful content, it's that they don't have access at all, or that they don't have enough competition".
Internet companies such as Google have strongly backed net neutrality, but many tech firms have been more muted in their activism this year. The FCC is scheduled to vote on the plan on December 14. Still, advocacy groups and various websites have been pushing to preserve net neutrality for months now.
Technology giants are expecting to lobby furiously against the FCC's plan, setting up a heavyweight fight between Silicon Valley giants and telecommunications conglomerates - two of the most well-heeled industries in the country.
Free Press Policy Director Matt Wood said Pai's proposal is "dangerous and wrong".
Pai has said that the number of comments for or against net neutrality rules "is not as important as the substantive comments that are in the record".
