State Rep. Brian S. King (D-Salt Lake) is crafting legislation that
would require internet service providers that do business with state
and local agencies to adhere to the net neutrality guidelines that
were in place before Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit
Pai dismantled them last year.

Proponents of net neutrality - which includes 80 percent of
respondents in one national poll from 2017 - say Pai's rules enable
large ISPs to choke out smaller competition and will allow them to
control how content is served up to internet users in the future. In
response, providers have said they "have committed to no blocking, no
throttling and no anticompetitive prioritization," according to an
emailed statement from the Utah Cable and Telecommunications
Association.
