Under net neutrality, Internet providers had to treat all users equally. The new rules, the Restoring Internet Freedom order approved by the FCC in December 2017, require ISPs to disclose any blocking, throttling or prioritization of their own content or from their partners. Nine in 10 American households use the internet, according to Pew Research Center, for everything from researching recipes, communicating with friends and family by marking themselves "safe" on Facebook or Googling symptoms of a medical issue to see whether a trip to the emergency room is needed.
"I am committed to protecting a free and open internet, while at the same time making sure there are reasonable standards to protect against unfair, deceptive, and anti-competitive practices such as blocking and throttling".
Net neutrality repeal - is it the end of the world?
"We were hopeful that that type of the light regulatory approach we're taking will lead to. better, faster, cheaper Internet access for consumers and more competition particularly".
Pai calls the FTC the "nation's premier consumer protection agency".
Wood: It's interesting, because you're describing bundles that, while we may pay more for them, are going to sound consumer-friendly at first.
Pai says that by deregulating the internet service provider industry, there will now be "strong consumer protections" and that "entrepreneurs [will get] the information they need as they develop new products and services". The rules also restricted ISPs from charging extra for certain traffic, creating so-called fast lanes for companies and consumers. Are you saying they want to more explicitly offer bundles that include preferred services? "They will have the right to discriminate and favor the internet traffic of those companies with whom they have pay-for-play arrangements and the right to consign all others to a slow and bumpy road". Several states including NY and Washington, have passed regulations that impose net neutrality on a local level.
Still, several of these measures have failed, some are still pending, and not every state has taken such actions. Network investment topped $1.5 trillion. Under Chairman Tom Wheeler, the FCC classified broadband internet as a Title II service, putting it in line with utilities like telephone service and electricity.
The repeal decision is now facing a lawsuit from Democratic state attorneys general and consumer groups.
Perhaps the repeal won't change the direction of the internet. Yet critics say companies are likely to invest simply because they now believe they can ramp up prices and earn more money from consumers and websites.
Although the FCC's repeal takes effect Monday, it's not the end of the road for net neutrality.
