Communications Commission next month is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether (File Photo) Related News The US Federal Communications Commission next month is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether according to people familiar with the plans The move would reignite a years-long debate that has seen Republicans and broadband providers seeking to eliminate the rules while Democrats and technology companies support them The regulations passed in 2015 bar broadband providers such as AT&T Inc and Comcast Corp from interfering with web traffic sent by Google Facebook Inc and others FCC Chairman Ajit Pai chosen by President Donald Trump in April proposed gutting the rules and asked for public reaction The agency has taken in more than 22 million comments on the matter Pai plans to seek a vote in December said two people who asked not to be identified because the matter hasn’t been made public As the head of a Republican majority he is likely to win a vote on whatever he proposes One of the people said Pai may call for vacating the rules except for portions that mandate internet service providers inform customers about their practices – one of the more severe options that would please broadband providers They argue the FCC’s rules aren’t needed and discourage investment in part because they subject companies to complex and unpredictable regulations Democrats and technology companies say the rules are needed to make sure telecommunications providers don’t favor business partners or harm rivals The agency declined to comment on the timing of a vote “We don’t have anything to report at this point” said Tina Pelkey a spokeswoman for the commission Pai in April proposed that the FCC end the designation of broadband companies as common carriers That would remove the legal authority that underpins the net neutrality rules Pai could also choose not to find authority in the FCC’s powers to promote broadband That would leave the rules without an apparent legal footing leading in turn to a conclusion the agency lacks authority even to issue revised less-stringent regulations The April proposal also asked the agency to consider lifting bans on blocking web traffic or on building “fast lanes” that favor those willing to pay more for faster service News of the December vote drew immediate reactions “Abandoning bipartisan net neutrality principles threatens to kill the streaming revolution and will hurt businesses large and small who are migrating to the cloud at record speeds” said Chip Pickering chief executive officer of the Incompas trade group with members including online shopping giant Amazoncom Inc and video streamer Netflix Inc “Chairman Pai’s affection for AT&T and Comcast holds great political risk for President Trump and the entire Republican Party” Pickering said in an emailed statement “No one wants to see the internet turned into cable and have to pay more for streaming services they love” Commissioner Mignon Clyburn part of the FCC’s Democratic minority said the agency is headed down a “destructive path” that doesn’t help consumers “What consumers want is access to a free and open internet without fear of being throttled or assessed a toll by their broadband service provider” Clyburn said in an emailed statement The current regulations forbid broadband providers from blocking or slowing web traffic or from charging higher fees in return for quicker passage over their networks Supporters of the rules say they are needed to keep network owners from unfairly squelching rivals and discouraging web startups Critics say the rules discourage investment while exposing companies to a threat of heavier regulation including pricing mandates and that marketplace competition will discipline broadband providers The regulation survived a court challenge from broadband providers last year Trump’s White House has opposed the rules In July as Pai’s critics protested a White House spokesman said the administration “supports the FCC’s efforts to roll back burdensome monopoly-era regulations” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy Swati Deb New Delhi: Finally the ‘Tai’ Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has cracked the whip If some Congress MPs and a section of media are surprised by the suspension of 25 Congress members from Lok Sabha proceedings for five days either they are being too novice in the game of politics or simply pretending Representational image PTI Things were actually coming to a breaking point as the ruling side and the Lok Sabha Speaker herself had kept on warning the disruptive members time and again "Congress should have been seen this coming after Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury was suspended for a day amid strong opposition from Congress and even Trinamul Congress" says one senior MP from a key opposition party on the condition of unanimity In fact earlier during the Question Hour on Monday Speaker had called most of these Congress members by name when they were displaying placards during the Question Hour and repeatedly ask them to keep the placards away The result is suspension of the Congress MPs This is unprecedented but Parliament watchers say the Speaker has acted under the provisions of Rule book itself The Rule 374(A) of Parliament says: "Notwithstanding anything contained in rules 373 and 374 in the event of grave disorder occasioned by a member coming into the well of the House or abusing the Rules of the House persistently and wilfully obstructing its business by shouting slogans or otherwise such member shall on being named by the Speaker stand automatically suspended from the service of the House for five consecutive sittings or the remainder of the session whichever is less" The move came after the government approached the Speaker slamming the Opposition for obstructing the House for the past several days Such a major action is the first in the current Lok Sabha where BJP has 282 members of its own and thus pretty comfortable with its NDA allies The suspended Congress members included BN Chandrappa Santok Singh Chaudhary AHK Choudhury Sushmita Dev Ninog Ering R Dhruvanarayana Gaurav Gogoi G Sukender Reddy Deepender Hooda S Kodikunnil SP Muddahanumegowda Abhijit Mukherjee Mullappally Ramachandran KH Munniyappa BV Nayak Vincent Pala MK Raghavan Ranjeet Ranjan CL Ruala T Sahu Rajee Satav Ravneet Singh K Suresh KC Venugopal and T Meinya Significantly Speaker’s action came after several warnings and pleas by TMC leader Sudip Bandhyopadhyay and CPI(M) leader P Karunakaran that it would "aggravate the situation" The Congress President Sonia Gandhi later called it a "black day" for democracy while Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh tried to blame Modi-led NDA for the same "Sumitra Mahajan ‘Tai’ an otherwise old School BJP/ Jan Sangh Leader how she has taken such a decision I am surprised Is she under pressure" Digvijaya Singh tweeted Sumitra Mahajan "Tai" an otherwise old School BJP/ Jan Sangh Leader how she has taken such a decision I am surprised Is she under pressure — digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) August 3 2015 The other opposition parties like NCP of Sharad Pawar Trinamool of Mamata Banerjee Samajwadi of Mulayam Singh Yadav – all seem to stick to the Congress for the time being and decided to boycott the Lok Sabha proceedings for 5 days in solidarity with Congress members A section of Congress leaders say the Congress-BJP confrontation would escalate further and bitterness could spill over to various states and also "onto the streets" Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has already tried to wedge a war between Modi-led NDA and the erstwhile Atal Behati Vajpayee-led NDA when he said "During NDA under Atalji no MP was suspended Under UPA in spite of BJP not allowing Parliament to function no BJP MP was suspended This is the basic difference between Democratic Leaders and a Dictator Basic difference between Atal ji and Modi" During NDA under Atal ji no MP was suspended Under UPA in spite of BJP not allowing Parliament to function no BJP MP was suspended — digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) August 3 2015 This is the basic difference between Democratic Leaders and a Dictator Basic difference between Atal ji and Modi ACHHE DIN AA GAYE — digvijaya singh (@digvijaya_28) August 3 2015 The Congress leaders’ idea is to spark off a debate over whether the Parliament can function like this Many lawmakers from smaller parties seem to agree with what the Congress has been trying to rake up "It is simply extension of ‘Gujarat model’ at the national level" NCP MP from Bihar Tariq Anwar told Firstpost He also termed it a "black day" with regard to parliamentary tradition and said his party will stick to Congress on the same "This shuts the door for any negotiation between Congress and BJP" JD(U) Rajya Sabha MP KC Tyagi said and went onto add "by this harsh decision the government has dragged some regional parties like JD(U) to stick to the Congress" New Delhi: A 78 percent more votes for the JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance over BJP-led NDA’s tally fetched it another 120 seats catapulting the Nitish Kumar-led coalition to a landslide two-third majority according to an analysis of Bihar poll results Representational image PTI The Grand Secular Alliance with 419 percent votes got 178 seats in a Hosue of 243 while the NDA with 341 percent votes could get only 58 seats final election data showed on Sunday night Lalu Prasad’s RJD with 184 percent votes bagged 80 seats to emerge as the single largest party while Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) garnered 168 percent votes to notch 71 seats They both contested 101 seats Congress the third partner in the Grand Secular Alliance fared creditably winning 27 of the 41 seats it contested It polled 67 percent votes The BJP which contested 157 seats polled the highest number of votes (244) but could bag only 53 seats BJP’s NDA allies – the Lok Jan Shakti Party and the Hindustani Awam Morcha (Secular) – could manage only two seats and one seat respectively polling 48 percent votes and 23 percent votes They contested 42 seats and 21 seats respectively The Rashtriya Lok Samta Party another BJP ally contested 23 seats but won only two with a 26 percent vote share The JD(U) with BJP as ally in 2010 Assembly polls bagged 115 out of the 141 seats it contested with a vote share of 3877 percent votes BJP bagged 91 of the 102 seats and its vote share was the highest at 3956 percent votes The RJD which was trounced could manage only 22 out of the 168 seats it contested against the JD(U)-BJP coalition and had a vote share of 1884 percent The Congress won only 4 of the 243 seats it contested and had a vote share of 837 percent The Samajwadi Party Bahujan Samaj Party NCP and the AIMIM which contested the Bihar assembly polls have failed to make an impact with their vote share getting restricted to 2 percent or below Percentage-wise around 25 percent voters hit the ‘none of the above’ button which is placed as the last option on the electronic voting machine BSP which contested all the 243 seats managed 21 percent of the total votes polled BSP had decided to go it alone in Bihar unlike arch rival Samajwadi Party which first became a part of the ‘grand alliance’ but later joined hands with NCP to form a ‘third front’ which too could not last long Samajwadi Party had contested 85 seats in Bihar and its share was one per cent The NCP which walked out of the ‘grand alliance’ over seat allocation had contested 40 seats Percentage-wise its vote share was 05 percent The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) which contested in six seats mainly in the Muslim-dominated Seemanchal region drew a blank and managed 02 percent of
