California Passes Net Neutrality Bill

California Passes Net Neutrality Bill

California has gone ahead with its own net neutrality bill to combat the federal government’s failure to preserve it. All it needs now is Governor Jerry Brown’s signature.

The California bill reinstates the 2015 FCC regulations that were recently repealed. It prevents internet service providers from blocking or slowing websites or videos, bans paid prioritization of websites, and prevents ISPs from exempting select traffic from counting toward a customer’s data usage.

USTelecom, a national industry group that includes both Verizon and AT&T, has promised to sue any state or local government that tries to enact net neutrality legislation.

Looks like things are heating up.
