The prevailing FCC wants to maintain that net neutrality isn’t a practical obstacle to further support their charge on the prevailing net neutrality rules. Yet News the company is working a petition to deliver higher than 47,000 net neutrality charges that it has taken since June 2015. The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) registered a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) appeal in May of this time to take the complaints, demanding to see the feedback of affected consumers is important to know the result of the FCC’s ruling to scrap the rules.
