FCC's Repeal Of Net Neutrality Starts Today

United States repeals net neutrality rules governing internet services

The 2015 net neutrality rules, established during Barack Obama's tenure as the president, ensured that internet service providers treated all data equally.

Pai added that he has empowered the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to police internet service providers "for anticompetitive acts and unfair or deceptive practices", and that under the FCC's Restoring Internet Freedom Order, "internet service providers must make public more information about their network management practices".

It essentially means that a free market approach instead of government regulation will now determine how businesses operate on the internet.

Critics say the end of net neutrality will force out smaller companies that can't pay to compete.

"What we'll see is that these companies will slowly start to implement policies, services that benefit their own affiliates and might have detrimental effects on their competitors", Narechania said. The Federal Communications Commission, a United States agency that regulates communication through radio, television, wire, satellite and cable, had taken the decision in December 2017. The internet should be an open platform where you are free to go where you want, and say and do what you want, without having to ask anyone's permission.

Meanwhile, the battle isn't over because liberal states like Washington and OR have already created their own net neutrality laws. California, New York and IL are also set to bring in legislation, thus bringing over half the U.S. population back under net neutrality.
