U.S. Congress to revisit Net Neutrality legislation

Posted by malcolm on Thursday, January 11th, 2007 at 14:22

The Chairman of the US House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet, Congressman Edward J Markey (D-Mass) said recently that he would introduce network neutrality legislation soon and planned to hold hearings. Two senators have also introduced a Bill to the US Senate.

These proposals continue to face strong political opposition since network neutrality legislation was defeated by 269 votes to 152 last year. However, the Democratic Party’s capture of the House of Representatives, and backing from the new Speaker of the House Californian Nancy Pelosi, has breathed new life into the proposals.
