WASHINGTON, April 8 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Friday to disapprove Internet "neutrality" rules that were adopted last year by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

In a matter affecting tech and telecom giants ranging from Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N) to Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O), House Republicans pushed through a measure against the FCC's rule by a vote of 240 to 179. (Reporting by Kevin Drawbaugh, editing by Dave Zimmerman)
