Connecticut moves forward when Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman broke the tie in a vote on Friday to pursue the country’s net neutrality bill.
Like every state, the main reason behind this is to overturn the FCC’s decision to forsake the open internet rules. The net neutrality bill designed by the former Obama administration restricts ISPs from blocking contents they are not in favor of. Likewise, they are forbidden to establish “fast” and “slow lanes” and charge particular content providers extra money for network access.
“At the beginning of the year, Senate Democrats said we’d fight for a net neutrality bill in Connecticut, and this evening Democrats delivered on that promise. Our bill [passed Friday] restores the best aspects of true net neutrality and provides the openness and access that our society values,” Democrat Sen. Terry Gerratana (NewBritain) stated.
Even if two earlier bills did not pass the legislative committees, the state’s net neutrality bill advocates and lawmakers did not lose hope and continue to fight. The bill that was passed on Friday was the same bill that was declined by a procedural tactic.
According to Democrat Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (Norwalk), open internet is valuable for businesses, consumers, and students. He emphasized that the state’s net neutrality bill is not about the partisan issue.
The Decenternet network is an open internet itself in the sense that consumers are free to communicate online. The system provides users the freedom to express themselves on the internet. They have boundless access to the traditional websites aside from the decentralized network.
It does not block, throttle, or impose extra fees to access other websites. As a matter of fact, consumers are the ones paid for using the service through the Spyce mining activity. Spyce (dnet) is the currency of Decenternet which can be interchanged with other dominating cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and EOS.
