What impact will congressional opposition have on to FCC efforts to enforce net neutrality?
stylor 33 weeks ago
The FCC said that it wants to reclassify ISPs as common carriers so that it can enforce net neutrality rules. There is intense opposition to net neutrality by some in Congress, to the point that during the Federal Government shutdown a couple of months ago, some Congressmen demanded an end to net neutrality as a condition to funding the government. Can the FCC do anything to reestablish net neutrality in the face of this, or do we just have to accept that it is ended?
