Net Neutrality is no more

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai pushed to overturn his agency's 2015 net neutrality protections

For now, at least, net neutrality is safe. just as long as you stay in Washington. It also removes the ban that keeps a service provider from charging an internet service, like Netflix or YouTube, a fee for delivering its service faster to customers than competitors can. "In 2015, the FCC stripped the FTC-the nation's premier consumer protection agency- of its authority over internet service providers". The Republican-led House, and President Trump, are both thought to be unlikely to back the Senate's measure.

The blocking and slowing of websites gets much of the attention in the net neutrality debate. The net neutrality protections prohibited internet providers from favoring or blocking access to particular products or websites.

"Internet service providers now have the power to block websites, throttle services and censor online content", Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democratic member of the commission who voted against the repeal, said in an emailed statement Monday. But that's also confusing because Thune said he actually supports the regulations. Even some technology companies joined the fight to preserve net neutrality, including Mozilla and Vimeo. In Montana and NY, governors signed executive orders that uphold the Obama-era net neutrality regulations. But here are a few tactics that have been tried before that have drawn scrutiny under the old net neutrality rules.

As of today, the end of net neutrality is official. In a dramatic video, she called on the House to save net neutrality in order to protect the "free and open" internet. In reality, the FTC will only be able to enforce a company's own terms and conditions, which won't do anything to stop the spread of paid fast lanes, zero-rating, or anti-competitive behavior across the industry. Many Internet providers, such as AT&T and Verizon, have said they do not and will not block or slow content. Comcast has also said it does not block or slow content and has no plans to offer paid prioritization. Want access to Facebook and Twitter?

Pai argued that net neutrality created a disincentive for internet services to invest in their networks.

What do you think about the net neutrality repeal? And consumers latch on to this notion of "free unlimited", and if you look at the fine print, the carriers give with one hand and they take with the other.

"The idea that your ISP, because it controls the on-ramp to the internet, can be in a position to affect the flow of information in society is a concern that resonates with people", Daniel Lyons, a telecommunications lawyer, tells MONEY. "We don't have engineers with technical experience in data network management practices".

Others, like Schaub, disagree.

Those might sound the same, but in practice they're very, very different. "The Internet is coming for net neutrality". The more realistic goal of the act is to put pressure on Republicans ahead of the 2020 elections - only changes in leadership are likely to have an effect on U.S.net neutrality rules.
