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

A collection of advocacy groups has called for "mass online actions" on June 11 to once again call attention to the issue and pressure Congress to act.

FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democrat who voted against the repeal, said Monday that the decision put the FCC "on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of the law, and the wrong side of the American public". Net neutrality is dead.

The debate around net neutrality was immediately politicized.

The net neutrality rules said companies had to treat all data equally. Ahead of the December 14 commission vote that ended those Obama-era net neutrality regulations, current FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called those same rules a " heavy-handed, utility-style.mistake" and pledged to stop the federal government from "micromanaging" the internet by introducing a new set of "internet freedom" regulations.

Another misleading ISP claim is that they want to get rid of Title II, and not net neutrality rules in general.

Organizations that fought to preserve net neutrality say the battle isn't over. Meanwhile, at least 29 states have pending legislation that would require ISPs to uphold net neutrality rules, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. In Montana and NY, governors signed executive orders that uphold the Obama-era net neutrality regulations.

And how will repealing net neutrality affect me?

Net neutrality repeal - is it the end of the world?

Net Neutrality protections prohibited internet providers from favoring or blocking access to particular products or websites.

And the last major concern is blocked content. ISPs could change their terms of service to censor content deemed offensive or immoral.

New regulations that took legal effect Monday give internet service providers (ISPs) sweeping power to slow, block or offer "paid prioritization" to some websites as long as they disclose the practices.

"Consumers won't notice the shift at first, but over time the internet will become unrecognizable", she said.

He added that the Federal Trade Commission will work to protect consumers. Pai thinks that giving these companies more control over the market will somehow make things better - but he doesn't explain that either.

Yet critics say that's a mistake, arguing that the FCC has the expertise and ability to regulate the internet industry, given that the agency's bailiwick is communication networks. "They now have nearly free reign over what content their subscribers will have access to", he wrote.

"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", said Gigi Sohn, a former counselor for the FCC. Led by its then-Democratic chairman, Tom Wheeler, the FCC approved rules that banned the blocking and slowing of Web content by Internet providers.

For anyone who hasn't been following, net neutrality is the concept of treating all internet traffic the same, no matter where it originates from.
