Senate Democrats have appealed to U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan in an attempt to prevent the FCC's net neutrality regulations from expiring. The Senate pushed through a vote to save the rules last month. In order for the measure to succeed, however, it needs to pass the House of Representatives and then be signed by President Trump. Speaker Ryan did not respond publicly to the request. Ryan is a Republican and the party has generally accepted FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's position that the rules need to be abolished. If no action is taken by the House, the rules will expire on Monday, June 11. Many consumers are in favor of keeping the rules, while industry players, such as network operators, are not. The FCC's move was seen as a win for internet providers, which will no longer need to abide by the Title II regulations and bright-line rules governing internet traffic.
