In what could represent a landmark moment, the US Senate has voted 52-47 to preserve net neutrality regulation introduced under Barack Obama, after the FCC repealed it last December. It requires 218 votes to force a vote there, and only 160 House Democrats back the measure for now.

Joining all Democratic senators in voting to reverse the FCC's action were GOP Senators Susan Collins of Maine, John Kennedy of Louisiana and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. The Internet was free and open before 2015, when the prior FCC buckled to political pressure from the White House and imposed utility-style regulation on the Internet.

Trump-appointed FCC Chairman Ajit Pai led the vote to dismantle net neutrality rules. "When are we going to get down to the actual legislation that both sides profess we need to have?" Democrats think the fight to restore the rules could be a political victor during November's congressional midterm elections even if the effort is unsuccessful, as it will force Republicans to record a vote against reinstating the rules. At issue are rules that the Federal Communications Commission repealed in December that prevented providers such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon from interfering with internet traffic and favoring their own sites and apps. Ed Markey, D-Mass., the leader of the Senate effort.

City council today took a baby step toward ensuring San Antonians have access to a free and open Internet - a concept techies refer to as "net neutrality."

He continued: "The Democratic position is very simple. Let's treat the internet like the public good that it is".

But, people often ignore the need for regular check up and visit a doctor only when the blood pressure shoots up. Researchers found 34.5 per cent of those studied worldwide had elevated blood pressure (above 140/90mmHg).

In its annual report filed in January, Netflix said the repeal of net neutrality, and the possibility that other "favorable laws" may change, could result in "discriminatory or anti-competitive practices that could impede our growth, cause us to incur additional expense or otherwise negatively affect our business".

"The House Republicans don't have to choose the same path that the vast majority of Senate Republicans in the Senate chose", Schumer said during the news conference. "(House Speaker Paul Ryan) should bring this resolution up for a vote immediately because it's too important of an issue to shelf. "The American people have spoken and the American people should listen". "It's disappointing that Senate Democrats forced this resolution through by a narrow margin". Instead of blocking the FCC's rule repeal, it suggested that policymakers work toward "bipartisan compromise legislation that will stand the test of time".

She says internet providers always tell her they won't throttle connections, even if there's no net neutrality.

"Moreover, contrary to the scare tactics employed by Senate Democrats, which earned three Pinocchios from the Washington Post's fact-checker, our light-touch approach will deliver better, faster, and cheaper Internet access and more broadband competition to the American people-something that millions of consumers desperately want and something that should be a top priority".
