The Obama administration believed that the internet needed to be regulated and controlled by the government in some fashion to make it easier for them to control what the American people can and cannot access. It’s part of their socialist agenda to limit knowledge and freedoms, thus they enacted the Net Neutrality regulations that are anything but neutral.
The Trump led FFC took action yesterday to roll back the Net Neutrality regulations which by doing so, does make the internet more neutral for the American people.
However, the neo-com Democrats will continue to fight the issue in the courts as they cannot stand to see Americans maintain their freedoms and have access to the truth about anything.
(Wired) – THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS Commission voted Thursday to dismantle its net neutrality regulations. But that won’t end the fight over rules that prohibit internet service providers from creating fast lanes for some content, while blocking or throttling others.
Most immediately, the activity will move to the courts, where the advocacy group Free Press, and probably others, will challenge the FCC’s decision. The most likely argument: that the commission’s decision violates federal laws barring agencies from crafting “arbitrary and capricious” regulations. After all, the FCC’s net neutrality rules were just passed in 2015. Activists and many members of Congress, including at least six Republicans, pushed for a delay in the vote, but apart from a brief delay due to a security issue, the vote occurred as planned.
But as capricious as the current FCC’s about-face may seem, legal experts say the challenges won’t be a slam-dunk case. Federal agencies are allowed to change their minds about previous regulations, so long as they adequately explain their reasoning. “It’s not carte blanche,” says Marc Martin, chair of law firm Perkins Coie’s communications practice. “You can’t make it obvious that it’s just based on politics.” Martin says the burden of proof will be on net neutrality advocates challenging the agency…
Even though some broadband providers managed to increased their investments, the Trump FCC argues that the regulations hindered the investments into infrastructure of broadband providers. Those that didn’t see increased investments are saying the regulations made no difference and had little impact. Regardless, there is certain to be a bitter court battle as a result.
