Net Neutrality Officially Ends But States and Localities Nationwide Fight Back

The Federal Communications Commission repealed the 2015 Obama administration's landmark net neutrality rules in December by a 3-2 vote, sparking a firestorm of criticism on social media websites, opposition from internet firms like Facebook Inc (FB.O) and Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O), and protests among Democrats in the Republican-controlled Congress. Net neutrality is the principle that internet providers treat all web traffic equally, and it's essentially how the internet has worked since its inception. He said the "Restoring Internet Freedom Order" will only improve the internet for users.

With net neutrality rules gone, AT&T and Verizon can give priority to their own movies and TV shows, while hurting rivals such as Amazon, YouTube and startups yet to be born. "The consumer is going to be protected and we preserve the incentive for companies to build out better, faster, and cheaper internet access".

Paid prioritization: Service providers could not create an internet fast lane for companies and consumers who paid premiums and a slow lane for those who didn't.

"No one other than the giant cable companies thinks it's a good idea to let the giant cable companies dictate the speed and price of the content you view on the internet", says Rep.

However, in the op-ed Pai does not defend against any of the common arguments for Net Neutrality. But what's more likely to occur are subtle changes to your Internet experience that you may or may not notice.

An edge provider, for those wondering, is an individual or entity that provides content, applications or services over the internet, or devices for accessing any of those things over the internet, available to end-users, i.e., the consumers.

"Following the decision to repeal net neutrality, many Americans anxious that the internet would turn into what cable-tv is: a set of options based on price and preference". "It's business as usual on the internet today - movies are streaming, e-commerce is thriving, and advocates are using the internet to make their voices heard", Jonathan Spalter, president and CEO of the broadband industry group USTelecom, stated today.

In practice, individuals will likely end up paying for better service, and companies and websites will pay for their content to load more quickly.

"Americans across the country are raising their voices against the Trump assault on the free Internet, yet House Republicans inexplicably refuse to listen to the will of the people and save net neutrality", she continued. ISPs may also sue the state, although no lawsuits have yet been reported.

Martin said broadband providers probably won't mess with existing services like Netflix, as that could alienate consumers.

But both of these approaches are expected to lead to court challenges by the FCC, whose new policy on net neutrality contains explicit language that tries to preempt states from doing exactly what the legislation and executive orders are meant to do. Those programs allow consumers to access certain sites and services without the data to and from them applying to any monthly caps they may have.
