Ajit Pai says you’re going to love the death of net neutrality

Net neutrality ends this Monday June 11th motion to keep it alive could die in the House

After a drawn-out battle between internet advocates and Trump's Federal Communications Commission, today marks the official end of net neutrality.

The rules oblige Internet service providers, or ISPs, to enable access of all content and applications, regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.

Verizon names tech chief as CEO, putting network over content
His appointment comes as Verizon and other wireless carriers are racing to develop a 5G network that would deliver faster speeds. Vestberg made a presentation about Verizon's 5G plans in a panel discussion at the CES show in Las Vegas in January.


Current FCC chairman Ajit Pai spearheaded the effort to return the internet to the way it was before the rules took effect, and despite the overwhelming support for keeping the rules intact, the FCC voted 3-2 to reverse course.

FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat who voted against the repeal, said Monday that the decision put the FCC "on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the law, and the wrong side of the American public". The first would be protecting users from bias caused by internet providers, who would be able to offer faster services to companies that paid them more. Plain and simple, thanks to the FCC's rollback of net neutrality, Internet providers have the legal green light, the technical ability, and business incentive to discriminate and manipulate what we see, read, and learn online. The rule stipulates that every ISP must clearly disclose their practices to consumers and that the Federal Trade Commission will regulate any ISP that imposes unfair or deceptive practices. Before 2015 The FTC had control over regulating the internet and it was only for the three years that the FCC had control. It may also make it harder for the next generation of online services to compete if they have to pay up to be placed in a so-called internet fast lane. The disclosures are essentially a get-out-of-jail-free card-the new FCC regime specifically allows ISPs to block, throttle, or prioritize content in exchange for payment as long as the ISPs disclose the fact that they're doing so. As we pointed out at the time of the Senate vote, the CRA now has to pass the House where the Democrats that support the Act are greatly outnumbered.

Jackson Odell Dies: Actor in ‘The Goldbergs’ And ‘iCarly’ Was 20
His family released a statement which reads: "The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell ". Authorities initially reported that their were no signs of foul play when his body was found.


For now, we are in a wait and see mode to see what happens next. The industry has largely promised not to block or throttle websites in the absence of the rules, and the repeal order is still facing a legal challenge from a coalition of net neutrality supporters. Now Comcast Cable president Dave Watson posted a blog post today to reconfirm Comcast's "committed to an open internet". "But then in 2015, the FCC chose a different course". Several states, including New Jersey, Washington, Oregon and California, have gone so far as to push legislation to enforce the principles of net neutrality within their borders.

Iraqi Parliament Orders Full Recount of May 12 Vote
The vast, working-class district is a stronghold of his supporters, who battled U.S. troops in the years after the 2003 invasion. The council ditched the leadership of the election commission and made a decision to annul votes from Iraqis out of the country.
