Net Neutrality Is Officially Gone. Here's How This Will Affect You

Under the new rules, the Federal Trade Commission will be the agency to handle complaints about broadband privacy and unfair or deceptive business practices by ISPs.
Pai also called the new course of action a "tremendous bipartisan success" and noted that the rules were "especially harmful for smaller internet service providers who didn't have the means to withstand a regulatory onslaught".
Until now, anyone who uses any website has grown accustomed to a certain level of speed and service.
In general, no. The big broadband providers have all promised that they won't slow customers' access to particular sites or services.
With the FCC's vote to end net neutrality in December, which went into effect Monday, ISPs have been given sweeping powers to act as gatekeepers to the internet.
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.
"In the short term, I don't think consumers are going to see any change at all from the Internet experience they've come to cherish", Pai told The Washington Post on Friday.
Across the country, state officials have moved to keep net neutrality rules in place on their turf. If you're a fan of Netflix, for example, net neutrality holds that you should be able to watch its shows without running into impediments your ISP puts up that are created to push you toward a competing service, such as Hulu.
Lawmakers and tech companies are still fighting to save net neutrality. The FCC's new rules also require ISPs disclose publicly any blocking or throttling they engage in, as well as reveal any deal in which they prioritize traffic. We're still not creating fast lanes. Even some technology companies joined the fight to preserve net neutrality, including Mozilla and Vimeo. For example, net neutrality ensured that an ordinary citizen's blog about local politics would not be slowed down or delayed from users in favor of paid advertisements or companies that pay a prioritization fee.
The ending of net neutrality has been met with overwhelming popular opposition.
In the wake of the FCC's repeal of its net neutrality rules, several states have adopted their own protections. "But starting today they have the legal ability to do so at any time they choose".
"ISPs could curate what online content and services most people will have access to, and which ones will only be available to those who are willing to and can afford to pay extra", Schaub added. According to the National Council of State Legislatures, governors in six states - New Jersey, New York, Montana, Rhode Island, Vermont and Hawaii - have signed executive orders upholding net neutrality, and three - Washington, Vermont and OR - have enacted legislation that does so. Others, including the governors of Montana and NY, used executive orders to force net neutrality.
