Net Neutrality Now, California


Oakland Privacy joined 40 other national and CA-based organizations in support of SB 822, the second CA state Net Neutrality bill. SB 822 is a comprehensive net neutrality reform that not only reinstates (in California) the protections in the FCC’s Open Internet Order, but amplifies them by including practices like zero-rating which waives data cap limits for certain sites and gatekeeps consumers w/o unlimited data to content chosen by their mobile and Internet providers.

SB 822 enforces statewide Net Neutrality by forbidding state contracts, cable franchises or broadband expansion funding to non-neutral Internet providers.

Another statewide Net Neutrality bill, SB 460, passed the Ca State Senate in February.
