In this news, we discuss the FCC votes to leave 2017 net neutrality repeal unchanged.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday voted 3-2 to leave the 2017 repeal of historic net neutrality rules unchanged, even after a U.S. court ordered a review of some provisions.
In October 2019, a federal appeals court largely upheld the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality rules in December 2017, but ordered the agency to reconsider the repeal’s impact on security. utility, regulation of power pole attachments, and the agency’s ability to provide subsidies for broadband service. The majority FCC chose not to modify the order.
