Senate upholds FCC rules on net neutrality

November 10, 2011 | By | Reply More

This is a great development on the topic of net neutrality, reported by Free Press:

[T]he Senate rejected a motion to proceed on its “resolution of disapproval” of the Federal Communications Commission’s Net Neutrality rules. The resolution failed by a margin of 52–46. The measure was an effort by Senate Republicans to reverse the FCC’s December 2010 rules intended to prevent Internet service providers from blocking or discriminating against content and applications on the Web.

I had previously published articles urging the rejection of the “resolution of disapproval” at DI (and see here).
