The California law would go beyond the earlier FCC rules, most notably by outlawing certain types of "zero-rating" programs, where companies exempt their own streaming services from data caps that apply to other providers.
The FCC did not reply to a request for comment.
"It would have huge implications for the USA, because California is so central to all things Net and is the world's eighth-largest economy", said Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond.
"Net neutrality is not dead". There are several net neutrality bills working through other states and at the federal level. Almost three dozen states have introduced bills to replace the defunct regulations, and three states have already approved them. Other states have already passed bills or put executive orders in place related to net neutrality. He has not taken a public stance on it, according to policy analysts, but the bill passed both Democrat-dominated state chambers by wide margins.
The bill's author, Sen. Senator Scott Wiener, who co-authored the bill, said it was the "strongest net neutrality standards in the nation". If more states start passing net neutrality laws, ignoring federal guidance and the chain of command, what will be the reaction of central government? "Net Neutrality is coming back". It gave California net users the flexibility to know what files a company esteem Fb or Google became once gathering, and how it became once being broken-down and shared with Zero.33 occasions. "This bill would set a tremendous precedent, with the power to shape the internet market not just in California, but across the country, for the betterment of consumers".

President Museveni had initially dismissed allegations that Bobi Wine was beaten up in detention as fake news. "As a result, Hon". Both men had been hospitalised with serious injuries they said they sustained at the hands of security forces during detention.
The FCC is facing a growing rebellion over its repeal of net neutrality, after 22 USA states in January sued to stop the new rules from taking effect.
That would essentially restore the net neutrality rules enacted federally under former President Barack Obama, which were later repealed by the Federal Communications Commission under the watch and guidance of current chairman Ajit Pai. Broadband-industry-backed groups such as CALinnovates and the Congress of California Seniors argued against it.
The California lawmakers are seeking to bar internet service providers like AT&T and Comcast from blocking or slowing down the transmission of web traffic to the state's broadband customers. The rules prevented internet companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see on the internet.
The fight in California grew so intense that some state residents reported receiving robocalls warning that the legislation could lead to an increase in their internet bills. The stronger provisions were later restored. However, FCC, led by Ajit Pai, repealed that rule with support from a majority of Republicans - a lot of them in the pocket of such ISP giants. "They're still paying attention. And they're not going to let their elected officials get away with selling out their constituents by siding with big telecom companies", said Evan Greer, deputy director of Fight for the Future, a non-profit consumer advocacy group.
