Net neutrality rules are repealed. Here's what could happen next

Net neutrality rules are repealed. Here's what could happen next

That means internet providers can speed up, slow down or block websites without violating federal regulations. If House net neutrality supporters can get those last votes, which is unlikely, the decision would still need to be signed by President Trump who is expected to veto it if it ever came to that.

The Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal net neutrality saying the regulations were unnecessary and unhelpful, that repeal takes effect Monday. Though whether anything will change depends on where you live, and what internet service providers choose to do with their newfound freedom.

A quick refresher: The Taycan is a sport sedan with an electric powertrain riding on a Porsche-developed platform code-named J1. Before you worry that Porsche isn't Taycan care of business, the new name is actually pronounced tie-con.


Opinion polls show overwhelming public support for the net neutrality rules. Under a new plan, the Federal Trade Commission will police the ISPs.

Another neighbor told Fox 13 Cheeks "loves her grandkids" and that they were "always outside playing with the dogs and stuff". The children told police that there was no room in the vehicle so their grandmother instructed them to get in the kennels.


A group representing major cable companies and TV networks said Monday that "despite a new round of outlandish claims and doomsday predictions from groups dedicated to stoking political controversy, consumers will be able to see for themselves that their internet service will keep working as always has and will keep getting better".

Last month, the Senate passed a measure to preserve the net neutrality rules. But in December, the FCC switched broadband back to a Title I classification, giving the FTC some of the regulatory authority the FCC previously had over ISPs and negating the legal authority the FCC had to ban practices like blocking, throttling and paid prioritization. "And in the medium- to long-term, I think we're going to see more investment in high-speed networks, particularly in rural areas that are hard to serve". As we pointed out at the time of the Senate vote, the CRA now has to pass the House where the Democrats that support the Act are greatly outnumbered. "Under that approach, the Internet was open and free", he wrote. ISPs would only be punished by the FCC if they fail to disclose what the commission used to consider net neutrality violations. "Plain and simple, thanks to the FCC's rollback of Net Neutrality, Internet providers have the legal green light, the technical ability, and business incentive to discriminate and manipulate what we see, read, and learn online". Others, including the governors of Montana and NY, used executive orders to force net neutrality. Several states, including New Jersey, Washington, Oregon and California, have gone so far as to push legislation to enforce the principles of net neutrality within their borders.
