ISPs must follow net neutrality in New Jersey, governor declares

ISPs must follow net neutrality in New Jersey, governor declares”

"Net neutrality protects Hawai'i residents from unnecessary fee increases from internet and cable service providers and protects small businesses and internet entrepreneurs who depend on unrestricted access to information to create jobs using new technologies", Saiki said.

In December 2017, the United States Federal Communications Commission dismantled the previously existing net neutrality rules governing broadband internet service providers such as Spectrum and Hawaiian Telcom.

Without net neutrality, major internet service providers can slow data speeds on competing company websites, or filter and block content that they find unfavorable, critics say.

Murphy's executive order - similar to ones signed by the governors of NY and Montana - requires that all internet contracts awarded or renewed after July 1, 2018, between internet service providers (ISPs) and any state entities stick to the "net neutrality" principles.

During the signing, Murphy stated the repeal was, "arbitrary and unsafe and will gives outsized power to a few big companies to control the free flow of information".

Murphy signed the order Monday in Newark. "While New Jersey cannot unilaterally regulate net neutrality back into law or cement it as state regulation, we can exercise our power as a consumer to make our preferences known", he added. "Ensuring the availability of people and businesses to interact freely relies on the internet remaining a free and open platform".

"Net neutrality helps and protects tech companies like mine".

Murphy said deliberations with ISPs have begun and "many, if not all, have said they would adhere [to net neutrality] as a matter of honor".

Net neutrality had been law since 2015, when the FCC voted to classify the internet as a Title II utility under the Communications Act of 1934.

Gurbir Grewal, New Jersey's attorney general, also announced that the state would be the 22nd to join a lawsuit against the FCC for throwing citizens to the wolves by giving in to the big telcos.
