The Illinois net neutrality bill is one step closer to enactment.
On Wednesday, the state legislatures brought the net neutrality bill to the General Assembly for discussion for the 2015 Open Internet Order lapses on April 23. However, the legality of the legislation as well as consumer protections.
A vote of 6-2 moved the net neutrality bill forward across the Data Analytics, IT, and Cybersecurity Committee. Illinois is one of the 23 states that filed a lawsuit against the FCC regarding the elimination of the Open Internet Order. Rep. Ann Williams’ net neutrality bill assures to avert modifications for ISPs that persevere with neutrality.
Both cable and internet service providers claimed that they have already given their word to support net neutrality. Thus, the involvement of the General Assembly is no longer required.
According to state Rep. Jonathan Carroll (Northbrook Democrat), he is not confident about the provider just giving a promise. He said, “Words are one thing. But this gives them the opportunity to make more profit. So I’d like to know — besides words, where’s the guarantee that they will not get away from net neutrality.”
ISPs representative Matthew Brill argued that numerous diversified lawmaking proposition mucks up the internet and cable industries. Advocates retaliated suggesting that putting back net neutrality is not a type of regulation. Instead, it is about internet content and equality for consumers.
Indeed a net neutrality bill is important especially when no one cares anymore about liberty and a fair shake. Decenternet can provide consumers the freedom of speech while keeping their personal information safe and secure.
