Colorado House approves net neutrality rules

Earlier this year, a bill that aims at protecting net neutrality in Colorado, was introduced by state Democrats. Governor Jared Polis is expected to sign this bill into law, after it was passed in the Colorado House this week. The bill disqualifies an Internet service providers (ISPs) from receiving money through a grant or any state fund established to help finance broadband deployment if the ISP engages in (a) throttling bandwidth or degrading Internet traffic; (b) paid prioritisation of Internet content, (c) establishing network ‘fast lanes,’ or (d) blocking lawful content, services, or applications and not provide reasonable transparency regarding their network management practices. According to Gizmodo, a representative for Polis told in a statement by email that the governor ‘supports the bill.’
