The contours of this move to repeal are similar to the privacy rules repeal. Not only would it undo the open internet order, it would prohibit the FCC from making a similar future rule. The privacy rule repeal was a good warm up for this fight though we should not take any outcome for granted.
The left seems to be playing pure defense, here, which is necessary for sure. So far the democrats seem unanimously opposed to this bill (still doesn’t mean we should take its defeat for granted.) I would really love to see a counter bill introducing an Internet title that starts to hammer out a clear, regulatory basis for expectations of privacy, network neutrality, and more.
ISPs would gain the freedom to block and throttle websites and applications.
