Tracking Net Neutrality - Pathways to an Open Internet

Tracking Net Neutrality - Pathways to an Open Internet
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM (Eastern Time)

The FCC Restoring Internet Freedom Order was released in December 2017 and published in the Federal Register on February 22, 2018.  The Order redefines Broadband Internet Access Service (BIAS) as an information service, regulated under Title I of the Telecommunications Act, rescinding the Commission’s 2016 decision to oversee Internet service providers under Title II of the Act.

Since then, 35 states have acted to protect net neutrality since the new rules were adopted.  Six states, Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont, have addressed this change by issuing Executive Orders requiring companies wishing to contract with the State to confirm that they will meet the 2017 net neutrality requirements.   Overall, 29 states proposed legislation reinstating the net neutrality rules or requiring state contractors to abide by them.  Nine additional states initiated Resolutions supporting Net Neutrality principles.  This legislation passed in Washington and Oregon, with bills still pending in several other states.

This webinar will provide an update on this important topic, including the types of bills that were introduced, privacy implications, FCC preemption of state laws, and other issues surrounding net neutrality.
