FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai called the court decision a "big victory for consumers."
Connecticut Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff spearheaded this legislative effort by insisting the bill would “hold companies to their commitments not to block websites, throttle speeds, or impose prioritization pricing and to establish a process for internet service providers to certify that they will not engage in practices inconsistent with net neutrality principles.”
On Dec. 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 along party lines to roll back the 2015 net neutrality rules that were put in place by a 3-2 party line vote.
The lawmaker acknowledged that while net neutrality is a federal issue, his bill would seek to mitigate the potential consequences of the FCC’s policy shift at a state level.
U.S. Se. Richard Blumenthal added that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai rallied to repeal the net neutrality rules “in the face of overwhelming opposition.”
