    Article: California Gets Nationís Strongest Net Neutrality Law

    ďThe Internet wasnít meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so itís insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead ó itís a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.Ē John Legere 1/5/2017

    Apparently the DOJ is suing CA. over this trying to prevent it from becoming law. They want one federal law to trump any state law.

    The DOJ's motion for a preliminary injunction claims that implementation of the law would cause "irreparable harm" to the United States. It isn't realistic for ISPs to comply with different net neutrality standards in different states, the DOJ argued, so the California law would effectively govern the entire nation.

    If the US District Court refuses to grant a preliminary injunction, the California rules would go into force as scheduled on January 1st 2019.
