US House passes bill to reinstate stricter net neutrality rules

Thursday 11 April 2019 | 09:19 CET | News
The US House of Representatives has approved the 'Save the Internet Act' to restore the previous net neutrality rules. The vote went largely along party lines, with the Democrats small majority in the House passing the draft law. The bill must still pass the Senate, which is controlled by the Republicans. Even if it does so, the White House has said it would veto the law.
