After the FCC voted on Tuesday to approve rules that would prohibit ISPs from blocking, throttling, or slowing the transmission of online content, some in the broadband industry are expressing disappointment that the agency did not use more specific language that would have prevented these actions.The move was intended to clarify the agency's previous language that prohibited such actions only aga...
Net neutrality is set to go into effect in Israel next month after being upheld by the High Court of Justice.
Net neutrality rules were enacted by the Supreme Court of Israel in November to ensure that the Internet has equal access to the same content, and ensure that there are no discriminatory or abusive practices on the Internet.
However, since the adoption of the rules, a number of internet providers and service providers have objected to the requirement that ISPs not block, throttle or otherwise favor certain types of traffic on the internet.
The Supreme Court ruled that the ISPs cannot block or throttle traffic, but cannot restrict access to sites that are not of their choosing.
Net-neutrality rules also have a direct impact on the Tel Aviv internet provider Tel-Aviv, which is the third largest in Israel and a major player in the Tel-HaMikvah and HaMikva sectors of the Telavane sector, and which has faced pressure from internet users to block certain sites on the web.
Net Neutrality advocates have called for the end of the net neutrality rules in the country, calling them a threat to Israel’s internet freedom.
Tel Aviv Internet, which provides services to the city’s population of nearly 2.5 million people, said on Wednesday that it was planning to implement the rules on December 10, but that they would only apply to services offered by Tel-Vid.
Netneutrality activists also called for an extension of the deadline to December 20 to allow ISPs to continue to offer services to their users, including in areas that are under construction or under construction work.
Netanyahu’s government has been pressuring the ISPs to impose the net-neutralization rules by using their influence to block and throttle traffic from sites that were not directly linked to the government.
Net traffic is the backbone of Israel’s Internet, and it is essential for the success of Israel and its economy, Net neutrality advocates argue.
Net users have also been calling for the repeal of the restrictions, and they have taken to social media to complain about the restrictions.
Net providers are the backbone to Israel.
We should not let the internet go to waste.
This is why we have decided to bring Net Neutrality to the country.
Netizens have also rallied to support the ISPs, writing on Facebook that they had received support from some 300,000 people.
NetNet neutrality advocates said that they did not want to stop them, but were instead hoping that the government would reconsider its position.
Net activists also say that Net neutrality will lead to increased competition in the Israeli market, which will allow for better access to internet services, which are critical to the economy of the country and the lives of people in Israel.
