Net Neutrality Rollback Official

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai

Of course, these commitments could change in the future, and indeed, some close observers have noticed subtle shifts in Comcast's promises already.

More than 20 states have filed a lawsuit to stop the net neutrality repeal.

In other words, certain providers could block or slow down sites like Facebook or your favorite news website.

"That is not the open internet we know today and rely on to consume and create".

The broadband providers typically frame this issue as wanting to be able to give special treatment to certain applications, where having extremely low lag times could mean the difference between life and death. I think the airlines can do that. "Ever", Bob Quinn, AT&T's senior executive vice president of external and legislative affairs, said in the February blog post.

"June 11 is significant because it will be the first time in the over 15 year battle over net neutrality that the FCC will have essentially no role in preserving an open internet and overseeing the broadband market", said Gigi Sohn, a counselor to former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler. Consumer advocates are concerned that internet providers plan to extend prioritization to the internet. "The fight to restore net neutrality rules has new urgency today and moving forward as we continue to work in the House of Representatives to repeal the FCC's awful decision".

And while a new administration in 2020 could, in theory, return the rules back to what they were, a more permanent decision still lies with Congress. So, the broadband providers are likely to move cautiously. Well, you might not see any changes until ISPs like Comcast and AT&T change their terms of service.

Still, the providers have seem to be paving the way to make changes.

The blocking and slowing of websites gets much of the attention in the net neutrality debate.

But they could start charging extra for services not yet offered. "Our goal is simple: better, faster, cheaper internet access for American consumers who are in control of their own online experience". But here are a few tactics that have been tried before that have drawn scrutiny under the old net neutrality rules.

Ajit Pai, who chairs the FCC, was known to oppose net neutrality and in the past had said it was a brake on innovation.

Do the states have any say about this?

.

Net neutrality ended six months after the FCC voted to scrub the previous rules, despite widespread public opposition to the decision. Several states including NY and Washington, have passed regulations that impose net neutrality on a local level. "Americans in every state and across the political spectrum support rules that ban ISPs from blocking, throttling, and prioritizing web traffic".

Net neutrality looks set to live on in piecemeal form as some USA states are enacting legislation that will require telecoms companies operating in their territories to abide by similar laws.

Today marks an official turning point in internet policy in the United States. The measure aims to restore the agency's net neutrality rules as if the repeal had never happened.
