Republicans Attempt to Defang the FCC
Jan 17, 2015, 9:11 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Republicans proposed net neutrality legislation of their own on Friday that could significantly weaken the FCC's power over regulator internet providers. The bill, drafted by Senate Commerce Chairman John Thune and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton, would make it illegal for network operators to throttle data or offer paid prioritization schemes — except for data management purposes. Moreover, the Republican proposal won't reclassify the internet as a public utility under Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act, which is the direction the FCC and President Obama are headed. The Republican bill would also restrict the FCC from expanding its authority over broadband companies beyond enforcing existing rules. The FCC is expected to publish its net neutrality plan on Feb. 5.

.......except for data management purposes
Why would anyone think the republicans would ever do anything good for the people?
The only reason the Pubs are on this path is that Obama wants to make internet a utility which will lead to more rules for the mega-corp monopoly leeches, like you have to have a complaint department and you have to take responsibility when you screw up your customers account and then overcharge them for it, as is current monopoly leech SOP.
