Murphy's order means that New Jersey joins NY and Montana in banning ISPs that do not follow net neutrality guidelines, which call for all data on the internet to be treated the same and that companies should not charge more for or block information from certain providers.
Demonstrators gather to show their support for net neutrality at the Washington Hilton on December 7, 2017 in Washington, United States.
Schneiderman said allowing providers to decide what people can and cannot view online "would be a disaster" for consumers, businesses, and everyone who cares about a free and open internet.
Like Montana and NY, whose governors also adopted net neutrality-related contracting orders, New Jersey is one of the now-22 states joining in a suit against the politically divided FCC's November rollback of net neutrality rules-New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced Monday (Feb. 5) that the state was joining the suit. "And, it certainly doesn't give certain companies or individuals a right to pay their way to the front of the line".
On Monday, New Jersey joined over 20 other US states in a lawsuit filed against the FCC related to the repeal of the regulations governing net neutrality. "Customers of smaller ISPs will not only continue to have an open internet, but also they will have greatly enhanced access as ISPs upgrade their networks and roll out new services".
In voting with the majority to repeal the classification, FCC chairman Ajit Pai called the 2015 action "heavy-handed regulation" that negatively impacted investment in internet infrastructure.
In addition to signing the order, New Jersey is also joining the lawsuit filed by a group of states that want to restore net neutrality.
Grewal's statement continued by saying the state's position is that the FCC acted against evidence it was present and arbitrarily when repealing the net neutrality provisions.
