Net Neutrality Repeal Goes Into Effect

Net Neutrality Ends Tomorrow, FCC On Track To Remove Rules As Scheduled

To put it simply, internet service providers could start charging companies to ensure their content loads at a decent speed, which is very important if a company is to be successful online.

Will my access to Netflix or other sites slow down?

However, it's possible that access could slow anyway. As a result, the internet could become more like the TV networks, where you pay for different packages of internet services. "In 2015, the FCC stripped the FTC-the nation's premier consumer protection agency- of its authority over internet service providers". It may also make it harder for the next generation of online services to compete if they have to pay up to be placed in a so-called internet fast lane.

For now, no. But that could change in the future. Paid prioritization can lead to price hikes for internet access, content providers can raise subscription rates or monthly fees for customers in order to offset the cost of access fees. The FCC's new rules also require ISPs disclose publicly any blocking or throttling they engage in, as well as reveal any deal in which they prioritize traffic.

"I think this is a mistake", Trees said. "Ever", Bob Quinn, AT&T's senior executive vice president of external and legislative affairs, said in the February blog post.

Net neutrality ended six months after the FCC voted to scrub the previous rules, despite widespread public opposition to the decision.

"Those "fast lanes" will put those who won't or can not pay in the slow lane, making the internet look a lot like cable TV", Sohn says.

Q. What were the net neutrality rules? Under the new policy, a violation might occur when regulators find out that an Internet provider has been blocking websites without saying so. So, the broadband providers are likely to move cautiously.

Any changes are likely to happen slowly, as companies assess how much consumers will tolerate. "They're slightly smarter than that".

There are two main schools of thought as to how the end of net neutrality will affect everyday internet users. Almost two dozen states and several companies have sued the government to try and preserve the rules.

Pai, who is a former attorney for Verizon, doubled down on his stance that repealing net neutrality rules was the right call. And a fourth provision, a "general conduct" standard, gave the FCC the ability to investigate broadband practices it believed could be problematic.

What's the logic behind the new rules, exactly?

Do the states have any say about this?

.

Over 20 states have joined the fight by banning together in a lawsuit to reverse the net neutrality repeal.

But net neutrality remains alive and well in Washington, thanks to a bi-partisan bill that was signed into law earlier this year. But those rules don't cover every provider in those states, just those that do business with those states' governments. In California, SB 822 is scheduled for Assembly committee hearings this month after the state senate approved it at the end of May.

That is, except if you live in Washington state.
