Texas Bill Would Ban Throttling Internet Speeds in Declared Disaster Areas

A member of the Texas state legislature introduced a bill that would make it a crime for a telecommunications company, like Verizon or AT&T, to throttle Internet service in declared disaster areas, according to KUT News. This Texas bill, HB 1426, doesn’t go any further to codify net neutrality rules, only prohibiting carriers from restricting internet access in disaster areas.
