Californians must have luck on their side as the Senate Bill 822 advances another phase. On Tuesday, California Senate Judiciary council validated the petition that Sen. Scott Wiener introduced. The bill garnered a vote of 5-2 as Democrats support net neutrality while Republicans oppose them. Of course, internet service providers are not so pleased with the decision.
Sen. Wiener declared that the state could and should hasten to restore Open Internet Order. This is to protect consumers as well as democracy from the profit-minded internet service providers.
Senate Bill 822 depicts the state-wide prohibitions regarding blocking, paid prioritization, and throttling. The FCC forbade these practices but nullified it in December last year. The agency’s decision to exterminate net neutrality for the sake of internet service providers began on April 23.
The ability of internet service providers regarding the exemptions of data caps will be disallowed as well. The bill would restrict some practices of paid “interconnection” compromises. It would concern companies such as Netflix end up compensating broadband providers to connect to their network directly.
Advocates suggest that net neutrality rules are vital. This will prevent internet service providers from practicing censorship and from harming competitors. As usual, the agency and its lobbyists oppose. They say that the Open Internet Order is draconian and discourage investments.
Internet service providers fear that the Senate Bill 822 will become law. They declared to dispute laws authorized by particular states.
The Decenternet network has nothing to fear since it is an open internet itself. It empowers and protects free speech. The users are provided with unrestricted access to other different websites.
The system that Decenternet uses is established for personal security. It also does not distribute personal information without permission. The platform never engages in paid prioritization with no fast or slow lane. Additionally, there are no cases of blocking or throttling.
