House approves resolution to keep Internet control out of UN hands

On Wednesday December 6th the House unanimously passed a Senate resolution that calls the U.S. government to oppose United Nations ability to control the internet. The staggering vote of 397 – 0 is clearly intended to send a message to the countries meeting at a U.N. conference focused telecommunications later this week. The resolution intends to avoid government control of the internet and to continue to promote global freedom of the internet in which it has thrived upon since its birth.

One thought on “House approves resolution to keep Internet control out of UN hands

  1. I wonder if the reason why other countries would want the U.N. to control the internet is because they think the U.S. has too much power and controls too much of the traffic. I personally don’t think the U.N. should regulate the internet, and I don’t see countries where the internet is already highly regulated benefitting from this.
