Net neutrality advocates criticise the letter asking for the creation of a net neutrality working group

It was published a letter signed by 47 Democrats in the House of Representatives asking for the chamber’s leadership’s support to form a net neutrality working group. In the letter, the lawmakers recognised that ‘Save the Internet Act’, a bill that would restore Obama-era net neutrality rules, is unlikely to become law, or pass through the Senate, in its current form. In opposition to the proposal to create a working group, more than 30 net neutrality advocacy organisations signed an open letter to Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives. According to the letter, ‘The Save the Internet Act is a common-sense bill with overwhelming bipartisan public support, and these attempts to undermine it by establishing a working group to advance disingenuous legislative efforts are strongly opposed by our organisations.’
