The upper house of Congress voted to abolish the decision of the Federal communications Commission
The U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted to keep rules of “network neutrality,” the decision to cancel that in December last year passed the Federal communications Commission.
For the preservation of the rules introduced by the Obama administration, in the upper house of Congress voted 52 Senator. 47 senators voted against it.
Democrats in the Senate declaring that the abolition of the rules of net neutrality will undermine the position of small business in the United States, managed to use legislation to block the decisions of Federal agencies.
Rules of net neutrality will oblige Internet service providers to provide equal conditions to users by prohibiting big companies unilaterally to slow down the speed of data transmission in networks or to block any content.
Despite the outcome of the vote in the Senate, the bill has almost no chance of approval in the House of representatives. The Republican-controlled Congress in December last year upheld the decision of the Federal communications Commission, and for cancellation of the initiative to the Democrats in the lower house must dopolnitelno to receive the votes of not less than 25 Republicans.
