With the FCC so close to finally passing real Net Neutrality rules, things are getting ugly in Congress.
Sen. John Thune and Rep. Fred Upton are pushing fake Net Neutrality legislation — dubbed "Title X" — and it's a loophole-ridden disaster.
While the Thune-Upton bill is disguised as Net Neutrality legislation, it would actually just protect the phone and cable broadband duopoly from oversight. It legalizes a lot of harmful discriminatory practices by preventing the FCC from moving on its own to adopt and enforce rules.
This proposed legislation needs to be exposed for what it is: a cynical cable-lobby effort to prevent the FCC from enforcing the law to keep the Internet open and nondiscriminatory.
