Canadian House Committee Requests Adoption of Net Neutrality Principles

Net Neutrality Requirements

Canada is considering to embrace the net neutrality principles.

The open internet is not only a US issue but also to other parts of the world including Canada. The House of Commons council endorsed that Parliamentary officially protect net neutrality principles.

The Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy, and Ethics (ETHI) issued a selection of five recommendations as an element of its The Protection of Net Neutrality in Canada report. The first endorsement recommends that the Canadian government think of preserving net neutrality principles in the Telecommunications Act. The term “net neutrality” does not appear in the measure.

But according to sections 27(2) and 36, there has been a particular extent of preservation that the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) used before to advocate Canadian net neutrality principles.

“The [Telecommunications Act] is dead clear that we have net neutrality. I think everybody’s scared because of the U.S…. but it’s already in the Act, and we’ve had a couple of decisions saying it’s in section 27 already,” said Public Interest Advocacy Centre director John Lawford in a phone interview.

Yesterday, the FCC already declared that the repeal of net neutrality principles will officially take place on June 11. The agency will set up new net neutrality guidelines that will provide ISPs broader authority to dictate how consumers can access the internet.

Democrats are certain that the net neutrality regulations issue is going to be a major argument in November’s midterm congressional votings.

At Decenternet, no vote is needed since net neutrality principles are well-preserved in the platform. It is pro-Internet users and does not focus on profit but on innovation and how it could well serve the consumers.

In Decenternet, all content is treated equally. There is no slowing down of internet connection because it does not favor any websites, thus,  preventing “fast” and “slow” lanes.
