Net Neutrality Is Finally, Actually Dead

The bill, passed with broad bipartisan support in February and signed by Gov. Jay Inslee in March, had a provision to kick into effect the moment the FCC finalized its order to eliminate the requirement for neutral Internet service, which occurred today.

Internet providers such as AT&T, Verizon and Comcast had to treat all traffic equally.

Here's how the the order may - or may not - affect you. They couldn't deliberately speed up or slow down traffic from specific websites or apps, nor could they put their own content at an advantage over rivals.

However, it's possible that access could slow anyway.

In practice, individuals will likely end up paying for better service, and companies and websites will pay for their content to load more quickly. The slowdown was only fixed after Netflix agreed to pay for the upgrades.

A group of 22 states have sued the FCC over the repeal. But it will be much harder for it to reach the floor of the House.

For now, no. But that could change in the future. The rules also banned paid prioritization, preventing any internet fast lane for those who paid a premium.

'They don't want to add fuel to the fire, ' Martin said. "I think that's insane". Your internet service provider is not going to be changing everything today. T-Mobile, for example, was criticized by net neutrality supporters for effectively making it cheaper for customers to stream videos from Netflix and HBO, putting other video services at a disadvantage. Here's what we can expect from tomorrow's internet.

Q. What were the net neutrality rules? So, the broadband providers are likely to move cautiously.

Companies willing to pay more of these fees are essentially given higher priority, which means you could see a rise in subscriptions rates or monthly fees from content providers to offset the costs of these fees. "They're slightly smarter than that".

"The big ISPs know that they're being watched - by Congress, by the courts and by their customers", she said. This is how the term "net neutrality" was coined - the idea was that every bit is the same and that ISPs can't charge differentiated prices based on different types of services. But here are a few tactics that have been tried before that have drawn scrutiny under the old net neutrality rules. The repeal effectively allows ISPs to block, throttle and prioritize content and internet access as they please. And remember how it seemed like it was taking forever to implement the new (lack of) rules?

Do the states have any say about this?

Jessica Rosenworcel, a Democratic FCC commissioner who has been an outspoken net neutrality advocate, said in a statement on Monday that the battle over how the internet is regulated is far from over. In Montana and NY, governors signed executive orders that uphold the Obama-era net neutrality regulations. Almost two dozen states and several companies have sued the government to try and preserve the rules.
