House of Reps Puts the Kibosh on FCC Net Neutrality Push

Article Comments  85  

Feb 18, 2011, 8:43 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

The House of Representatives has voted to overturn regulations proposed by the Federal Communication Commission that would impact how broadband providers manage their networks. The bill was killed by House Republicans. Republican Representative Steve Scalise said, "We think the FCC overstepped their boundaries. This is something that should be done and solved in the halls of Congress." Verizon sued the FCC in January, making the same claim. The FCC provisions impacting mobile operators state that wireless providers would not be able to block users from accessing any web site. Wireless providers also wouldn't be allowed to block internet calling services that make use of wireless broadband data connections. The providers would also have to publicly disclose their network management practices. Without approval of the House of Representatives, the FCC's proposed rules have an uncertain future.
