Net Neutrality Rules Take Effect.

Net neutrality rules have taken effect after a federal judge denied the telecom industry request to stay the rules until the courts resolve the legal challenges. Meantime, Republican members of Congress introduced a bill seeking to block money for FCC enforcement of the rules. On another matter, a new bill in the House would make Internet access more affordable by enhancing the FCC’s Lifeline program to help low-income consumers connect to emergency services, family members, and jobs. Analysts discuss these pressing issues.
