No Comments on 2006 — June 8th: House of Representatives Votes down Net Neutrality

In the United States, the argument of open Internet and unbiased availability granted to users, providers and types of streaming services (like Netflix) and data, has been an ongoing debate. The amendment would have formalized policies towards Net Neutrality, which has been preferred and lobbied for by many Silicon Valley companies. The divide down party lines received most opposition come from the Republican side of the House while the majority of Democrats favored it.

The arguments in favor basically felt that the internet should be made free to anyone without restriction of who they are or how they are using it, suggesting that innovation will be prevented without an open internet, whereas conservatives argued that the language of the amendment had problems that could lead to excess regulations for small businesses such as coffee shops that make their internet connection available to the public, making them accountable for security and facing potential penalties in hard to manage situations.
