    The proposal faces widespread protest from people who believe that rich companies paying for greater access to Internet subscribers will disadvantage startups and companies with fewer financial resources. The meeting today was disrupted twice by protesters who were led out of the room while shouting opposition to rules that degrade network neutrality.

    this has been ongoing for years now. I wonder if it will ever come to a final decision or if it will continue to be prolonged and delayed.

    I am sure every year the "deadline" approaches, then stuff happens and nothing actually gets finalised, until another "deadline" approaches.
