The FCC, led by chairman Ajit Pai, voted to repeal net neutrality on December 14.

He adds that along with the intervenor actions, member companies will push for a more permanent legislative solution.

A finalized repeal of Net Neutrality is still in the making, so it remains unclear of how the FCC's decision to deregulate broadband companies such as Verizon, Comcast and AT&T will affect the general public's Internet use.

Legal challenges to the decision have surfaced since, with a number of Attorney Generals and Congressmen from various US states voicing their opposition to the bill, and some plans to file suit against the repeal.

The Internet Association is the main lobby group for internet companies in the USA, including Google, Amazon, Netflix, Twitter and Facebook.

Morfeld's proposal also aims to prevent internet service providers from blocking or restricting content and applications on certain devices, while also preventing those companies from practicing "paid prioritization", or providing better internet service to customers who pay more.

The comment came after the account retweeted the Internet Association's statement announcing its intent to intervene in judicial action to preserve net neutrality. Wireless and wireline service are not equivalent and should not be treated as such, particularly when it comes to ensuring that all Americans have access to internet service at acceptable speeds and prices. The Internet Association said it would join the suit against the revised rules, which the agency released Thursday night.

The legal challenge has particularly been supported by Netflix, whose data-heavy video streams could face extra charges by internet service providers, also said it would support a legal challenge. "As for the FCC, we will see you in court".

"In 2018, the Internet is united in defense of #NetNeutrality". He has also argued that the change would withstand any legal challenge, as it essentially restores the rules to what they were before 2015.

Over 200 businesses have asked the FCC to reconsider its plan to end net neutrality. They have deployed text and email campaigns meant to pressure lawmakers to support a congressional reversal of the commission's action.

Jim Speta, a law professor at Northwestern, says USA courts have previously upheld the FCC's ability to preempt state regulations concerning the telecommunications market. "It is not going to kill democracy and it's not going to stifle free expression online", Pai said last month. At the commission meeting where the new rules were approved, law enforcement officials briefly cleared the room to address an unspecified security issue.
