New bill to restore net neutrality approved by US House of Representatives

The ‘Save the Internet Act’, a bill that would restore Obama-era net neutrality rules that prohibited blocking, throttling, and paid prioritisation, was voted and approved by the US House of Representatives. As Democrats have a majority in the House, the approval was expected. However, the bill is expected to face difficulties in becoming law, since it could be blocked by the Republican-controlled Senate or vetoed by President Trump. In addition, White House staff claimed that consumers have benefited from the net neutrality repeal.
