Senators divided over FCC's Net Neutrality plan

Net Neutrality Repealed Substratum Price Sees New All Time High					            Colin Harper

In the same speech, Pai also went after like musician Cher and actors George Takei, Mark Ruffalo and Alyssa Milano by name for criticizing his proposal to repeal net neutrality.

Ajit Pai, the chairman appointed to run the FCC by President Trump, has been an longtime critic of the net neutrality rules. They put their request for a vote delay in a letter to the FCC. Yet blithely ignoring clear evidence that two million of the comments it received stole Americans' identities (not to mention another eight million that used entirely fabricated identities), stonewalling a state law enforcement investigation, and insisting upon a vote on a sweeping and controversial policy change despite a growing widespread outcry from Americans and a bipartisan chorus of elected officials and state law enforcement officers will irreparably damage the FCC's integrity. "I certainly would not rule that out". "Therefore, I urge you to delay your upcoming vote and provide and provide Congress with the opportunity to hold hearings on the net neutrality issue and to pass permanent open Internet legislation". More than 5,000 people have filed reports with Schneiderman's office over fake comments, and up to 2 million comments misused identities.

The net neutrality repeal is just one part of the Pai's deregulatory agenda. They were meant to ensure a free and open internet, give consumers equal access to web content and prevent broadband service providers from favoring their own content. Mr. Pai proposes allowing those practices as long as they are disclosed.

"It is important to understand that the FCC's proposed Order is based on a flawed and factually inaccurate understanding of Internet technology", they write. And yet, in less than 24 hours we are scheduled to vote on wiping out our net neutrality protections. "It should be stopped".

Adobe Systems (ADBE) Scheduled to Post Quarterly Earnings on Thursday
The stock of Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE) earned "Outperform" rating by RBC Capital Markets on Friday, March 18. Moreover, Aimz Limited Liability Com has 1.24% invested in Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE) for 10,400 shares.

Many comments for and against net neutrality rules are identical because advocacy groups urged people to sign form letters, so the text of a comment alone isn't enough to determine if it was submitted by a real person. Overturning Pai's misleadingly named "Restoring Internet Freedom Order" would be created to leave us with the exact same Net Neutrality protections we won in 2015, based on the firm legal grounding of Title II. For those who may not be fully aware of the situation, net neutrality refers to the 2015 decision to reclassify ISPs under Title II regulations of the 1934 Telecommunications Act.

"Consumers, not corporations, should be in control of individual internet access", Higgins said. "It's not just about access, it's about building a healthy digital ecosystem".

The breaking of ranks from Republican lawmakers comes as a poll from the University of Maryland shows that the net neutrality rules have wide support among the party's voters, the Washington Post reported.
