A key House Committee delays a hearing on net neutrality after not one of the eight major tech companies showed up to testify.

GOP members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee are seeking to establish legislative net neutrality, which is currently subject to regulation by the FCC.

The FCC’s duty is to ensure internet service providers treat all internet data the same, regardless of user content, website, or platform.

Some Democrats favor the FCC’s takeover of the internet.

“We need those rules in place to put a check on this consolidation that’s happening among these big companies,” said Representative John Sarbanes. “That’s why an open internet has to be preserved by keeping these rules in place, and I don’t understand, I cannot understand why the new head of the FCC would want to get rid of that authority.”

Experts say legislative net neutrality would deprive both the FCC and major internet providers of control over the internet.

In July, House Republican leaders threatened that if internet providers kept objecting net neutrality other policies could become tougher on them.
