"The FCC's new rule fails to justify the Commission's departure from its long-standing policy and practice of defending net neutrality while misinterpreting and disregarding critical record evidence on industry practices and harm to consumers and businesses", a press release from Schneiderman's office reads. "It failed to listen to their concerns and gave short shrift to their deeply held belief that internet openness should remain law of the land".

"As a result of the mess the agency created, broadband providers will now have the power to block websites, throttle services and censor online content", Rosenworcel said. This is not right. "The FCC is on the wrong side of history and the wrong side of the law and it deserves to have its handiwork revisited, re-examined, and ultimately reversed".

Fellow Democrat Mignon Clyburn was equally tough on the decision. I am both disappointed and hopeful. If legal challenges (like the one being conducted by the attorney general of New York) fail to halt the repeal, US citizens will have to wait until 2020 to vote out Trump and install a new president who will be favorable toward the return of net neutrality.

No pitch clock in 2018, but mound visits, warm-up times limited
Keep in mind that a 20-second pitch clock has been used at Double-A and Triple-A for three seasons now. It seems like he's out there talking to the pitcher two or three times an inning.

Schneiderman said: 'Repealing net neutrality will allow internet service providers to put corporate profits over consumers by controlling what we see, do, and say online'.

"I will continue to fight aggressively to stop the FCC's blatant, un-American attack on a free and open internet".

The FCC's two Democrats are among the most vocal critics of the decision to repeal the rules.

Congressional aides say the publication will trigger a 60-legislative-day deadline for Congress to vote on whether to overturn the FCC's decision. Democratic senators, including Chuck Schumer and Ed Markey, are trying to drum up support for a bill that would do just that. The Senate is reportedly evenly split, with 50 votes in favor of reversing the action.

Even though many people agreed with the basic premise of net neutrality, the FCC's rules became a lightning rod for controversy because they placed broadband providers under the same strict regulations that govern telephone networks. "Common Cause and its allies are fighting all the way to oppose the FCC's misguided actions and restore the net neutrality rules through all fronts including litigation, state legislation and the Congressional Review Act". All we are left with is Big Cable and Big Telco telling us to "trust them" not to violate net neutrality principles. During the vote to repeal the regulations, FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly said he would not stand for "a hodgepodge of state rules". The Commission restores the classification of broadband internet access service as a lightly-regulated information service and reinstates the private mobile service classification of mobile broadband internet access service.
