The House recently passed a resolution banning the regulation of the Internet by the United Nations through the ITU (International Telecommunication Union).

The decision was unanimous by the House of Representatives. This was the same bill that reached the Senate through Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill.

UN countries are set to meet soon in Dubai to update an international telecom treaty signed way back in 1988. The House hopes their decision will make these countries decide.

It’s not only the US who wish to limit new policies but there’s also Canada and a few EU countries. We’re crossing our fingers.
