A new bill, which would require ISPs to offer broadband internet access to everyone by 2019, was approved by the US House of Representatives today.
The bill would also impose net neutrality rules on the broadband industry, such as ensuring that all internet traffic is treated equally.
The bill is supported by the American Cable Association, the American Wireless Telecommunications Association, and the National Cable & Telecommunications Association.
The legislation would also include a prohibition on charging a higher price for faster internet than it would for slower internet.
The proposal comes after FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his allies in Congress proposed a proposal to reverse the FCC’s net neutrality protections.
Pai’s proposed legislation would remove the FCC from the current legal framework and give ISPs unprecedented control over what services they can offer, including blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization.
Pai and members of his own FCC have also pushed for more restrictions on broadband internet, including a ban on paid prioritized access.
A new proposal, called the Fairness for Broadband Act, was proposed by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who is the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus.
In the bill, ISPs would have to offer internet service to every American by 2019.
ISPs would also have to provide broadband access to anyone who was eligible for it in 2019, regardless of where they live.
The proposed legislation also would require all US broadband providers to offer at least 100Mbps, which is more than the current 1Mbps.
That’s important to keep in mind, as this will mean that if your neighborhood has 1Mbps broadband, you’ll be able to get that service from Comcast or AT&T, which are currently only offering speeds of 5Mbps or less.
It’s also important to note that a major component of the bill would allow ISPs to charge different prices to different groups of Americans based on how many people are participating in the broadband service.
This could result in the same or higher internet service available to more people, but also slower speeds to some, or faster speeds to others.
For example, the bill calls for a minimum of 1Mbps for those who are eligible for a high-speed internet plan, but only requires 1Mbps or 5Mbps for the people who don’t qualify.
The FCC’s proposal would also require internet service providers to charge consumers a “fair and reasonable” price, and prohibit ISPs from using fees as a basis for charging internet service.
A “fair” price for internet service in the bill means that an ISP is charged a reasonable price that is comparable to other providers.
Pai has said that ISPs should not be allowed to charge customers anything more than a reasonable amount for internet, even if the prices are lower than what other internet service companies are charging.
The legislation also includes protections for consumers, including the ability to get broadband service at no cost if they live within 30 miles of a rural area.
In addition, consumers could get an internet connection at the lowest price they can get.
A new FCC rule would also allow consumers to make an opt-out of a broadband plan if they do not like the price or service they’re getting.
This bill is the first time that Congress has ever considered a net neutrality bill.
The FCC is currently considering its next set of rules, which could require broadband providers like Comcast to offer more services or offer better services.
