FCC Vote Destroys Net neutrality Rules

FCC Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to upend regulating the businesses that connect consumers to the internet, granting broadband companies power to potentially reshape Americans’ online experiences.

Voted on Party Lines – In a 3-2 vote today

The agency removed net neutrality regulations that prohibited broadband providers from blocking websites or charging for higher-quality service or certain content. The federal government will also no longer regulate high-speed internet delivery as if it were a utility, like phone services.

 




What does this mean to consumers like you? Simply put the internet as we have come to experience it has changed and it may never be the level playing group that once caused the internet to be a thriving market place that built completely new economies.

 

Groups are already looking for ways to fight back against this ruling and ensure the return of net neutrality.  But, clearly it will take a great involvment of the general public to understand the nature of the internet and be more involved.
