New York Drafts Net Neutrality Legislation

Net Neutrality Legislation

New York has established legislation that mimics the California net neutrality law in an attempt to go past a federal effort to abolish America’s net neutrality.

 

Brad Hoylman, leading Democratic New York senator addressed a “bicoastal effort” between two states on Wednesday and specifically, San Francisco senator Scott Wiener to come up with net neutrality legislation to restore the rights of open and free internet.

 

What can be considered as “the most comprehensive and strongest” effort to restore the current net neutrality before the repeal made by the Federal Communications Commission is the product law which is now is being studied in Sacramento. S.8321 is as efficient as California’s SB 822 by Wiener.

 

Senate Bill S8321 wherein the public service commission seeks to control the regulation of the Internet service providers requires internet neutrality and pertains to the placement of equipment on utility poles.

 

The legislation also aims to control some forms of “zero-rating,” exempts contents from users’ data caps and would put a ceiling on some forms of paid “interconnection” agreements, which can include video providers settling payments to broadband carriers to interconnect directly with their network.

 

In 2014, Netflix was involved in interconnection agreements with carriers to provide solutions for rough streams.

 

Hoyman and California State Senator Scott Wiener in a joint statement also said that their bills would reestablish full net neutrality principles to one-fifth of the American population.

 

In California, last month two Senate Committees approved the bill despite received protest from AT&T and cable lobbyists. Before being able to acquire vote from the full state Senate, it needs to go through one more committee.

 

Wiener and Hoylman will encourage more state lawmakers to pass similar legislation, according to their announcement. The action plan, if it would be successful, could address the complaint by the broadband industry in having to face a “patchwork” of different state laws, because by then, they didn’t have to.

 

The internet, should the repeal of net neutrality principles take in effect, will be governed by confinement and limitation. Far from the free and open internet that the citizens used to know, the effects to the industries and sectors can be imaginable.

 

But with the introduction of the Decenternet into our internet environment, we can choose not to be involved with confinement and limitation because having a centralized internet may not be the only option any longer. The Decenternet is a new free web application protocol that allows gradually mass adoption of distributed internet infrastructure through domestic mining by the production of Spyce (trade and economic activity currency on the Decenternet payment network).

 

Implementation of such is mainly achieved by its principal practical components: the Osiris Browser, which is the fastest and most secure Decenternet native Browser which allows the user to experience the Decenternet. It also lets you use both traditional websites and the Decenternet websites.

 

A Linux-based Decenternet native OS, the Anuvys, is another component designed to make sure of your freedom and privacy since it is not bloated with surveillance protocols which automatically reports to a third party with every simple activity. Also, it improves rate production of Spyce.

 

Lastly, the Decenternet native Liberty Search engine is designed to provide the web content requested from the Decenternet without any third-party influence or misrepresentation. Liberty is a public domain utility, not a “product” thus free and self-sustaining.

 

Do you realize that if this technology is realized, it may be far from the reality you’ve ever experienced?
