What the end of ‘net neutrality’ means for your internet use
11 June 2018, 11:11 | Regina Holmes
It's 4th and 40 for net neutrality supporters in Congress as House is short of the votes needed to bring up the CRA motion
With the end of net neutrality, Broadband providers insist they won't do anything that harms the "internet experience" for consumers.
Supporters of net neutrality argue that ISPs should deliver access to online content and apps equally, and prefer rules the FCC passed in 2015. FCC Chairman Ajit Paisaid he wants to return to a "light-touch" regulatory framework for the internet and is kicking authority to police broadband companies over to the FTC.
The FCC's decision to repeal the Obama-era consumer protections ended prohibitions against ISPs discriminating against web traffic or creating so-called internet fast lanes.
And critics fear repealing them may see consumers charged extra for anything more than the most basic service.
With Net Neutrality coming to an end, there are fewer rules governing how internet service providers can operate.
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.
"Americans across the country are raising their voices against the Trump assault on the free Internet, yet House Republicans inexplicably refuse to listen to the will of the people and save net neutrality", she continued. Many Democrats say the issue will help motivate younger people to vote in congressional elections this November, when all 435 seats in the House and a third of the 100-member Senate will be up for grabs.
In an opinion piece published on CNET, Mr Pai in the many years of net growth before the neutrality rules "Facebook, Amazon, and Google went from small start-ups to global tech giants". ISPs would only be punished by the FCC if they fail to disclose what the commission used to consider net neutrality violations.
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.
Pai told CBS that he doesn't believe regulating the internet in the same way phone networks are regulated is the best way to achieve the goal of a "free and open" internet.
More than 20 states have filed a lawsuit to stop the net neutrality repeal.
