New bill to restore net neutrality moves forward despite companies pressure

A net neutrality bill known as the ‘Save the Internet Act,’ which aims to restore the open Internet order of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), passed through the subcommittee on Communications and Technology session, despite some last-minute amendments introduced by lawmakers in an attempt to weaken the bill. In the next step, the bill will be forwarded to the full Committee. Although the public clearly wanted a clean restoration of the original rules, the new bill will face a tougher uphill climb in the Senate, and would also need to avoid a veto by President Trump to become a law.
