Another effort to reverse the repeal of net neutrality is currently being pushed, and this time, political experts are saying that this recent effort can be more effective as it is a key policy point for the 2020 Presidential election.
Net neutrality can be saved through HR 1644 or the “Save the Internet Act of 2019.” Members of the Congress led by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi announced around the first week of March that this act can bring back net neutrality to the USA which was repealed when the FCC voted to end the Open Internet Order of 2015 in 2017.
