Schumer Wants To Repeal Order To End Net Neutrality
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer is planning on introducing a resolution to repeal the FCC's recent order to end Internet neutrality.
The New York Democrat says ending an open Internet could slow down or block the Internet for millions of Americans and allow big providers to favor customers.
“With the disastrous repeal of Net Neutrality rules, the Internet may start to resemble a toll road, with the highest bidders cruising along private ‘fast lanes’ while the rest of us inch along a single, traffic-choked public lane; and we could be forced to purchase internet packages much like cable packages, paying more for popular sites,” said Schumer.
The Obama-era regulations voted down this week requires Internet service providers to treat all traffic equally.
Critics say the government should not micro-manage the Internet.
