Citrix: The Net Neutrality Decision and Implications for Citrix Customers

Citrix: The Net Neutrality Decision and Implications for Citrix Customers

Without the rules in place, internet service providers could choose to charge customers extra to access certain services, Content providers could also be on the hook for fast-lane access, or risk their services being slowed.

NY attorney general Eric Schneiderman, who is leading the suit, said Tuesday that the end of the net neutrality rules would hurt consumers and businesses. The petitioners will likely argue the FCC oversaw a flawed comment period and ignored sound reasoning on the road to a net neutrality appeal. CRA resolutions allow Congress to overturn regulatory actions at federal agencies with a simple majority vote in both chambers. The killing of net neutrality is an anti-free market maneuver that is meant to give control of the internet to large corporate Internet Service Providers.

In a statement, Senate Democrats said the bill has support of all 49 Democratic senators. The lawsuit was filed Attorney General Balderas and the attorneys general California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia. That puts them just two votes shy of being able to stop any legislation - or in this case, pass something of their own. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said recently that Democrats plan to turn net neutrality into an issue in the midterm elections later this year, using the strong support for net neutrality as a way to draw support for Democratic candidates. Republicans have previously used the Congressional Review Act to repeal Obama-era regulations. "There's overwhelming public support for preserving net neutrality, so it's no surprise that there's strong support in Congress as well".

Clark wins UFC fight on points
The loss was VanZant's third in her last four fights but few will be talking about that in the wake of this courageous display. VanZant started aggressively throwing switch-kicks to her opponent's mid-section before Clark ultimately secured a takedown.

Granted, the measure still has an uphill climb even if it passes the Senate.

Opposition to the decision to end net neutrality was high in the months leading up to the decision, leading to threatening phone calls and death threats for members including FCC Chair Ajit Pai.
