These states are working to keep net neutrality alive

These states are working to keep net neutrality alive

The Internet Association said Monday that the "internet industry remains committed to restoring net neutrality protections through the courts, legislation, and administrative action". Many Internet providers, such as AT&T and Verizon, have said they do not and will not block or slow content. Comcast has also said it does not block or slow content and has no plans to offer paid prioritization.

The repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections officially took effect on Monday, almost six months after the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission voted to roll back the rules. For example, we empower the Federal Trade Commission to police internet service providers for anticompetitive acts and unfair or deceptive practices.

Lawmakers and tech companies are still fighting to save net neutrality.

Proponents of net neutrality quickly mobilized for the overturn of the FCC's repeal, and last month, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would scrap the FCC's decision and retain net neutrality rules.

For now, broadband providers insist they won't do anything that would harm the "internet experience" for consumers.

Net neutrality is officially no longer the rule of the land. In Montana and NY, governors signed executive orders that uphold the Obama-era net neutrality regulations. The chairman of the FCC Ajit Pai says, "Everybody in the internet economy is better off with a market-based approach".

Organizations that fought to preserve net neutrality say the battle isn't over. These new rules are going to affect the way internet providers do business, but how noticeable will the changes be to consumers?

Under the rules, internet service providers were required to treat all online content the same.

Pai argues that net neutrality was part of the FCC's regulatory overreach during the Obama administration. Ahead of the December 14 commission vote that ended those Obama-era net neutrality regulations, current FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called those same rules a " heavy-handed, utility-style.mistake" and pledged to stop the federal government from "micromanaging" the internet by introducing a new set of "internet freedom" regulations. With startups unable to pay for these lanes, there is no chance that small, unsupported entrepreneurs will turn into future Snapchats or Facebooks, as this repeal only preserves the monopoly that the handful of tech giants now enjoys along with the powers of a few ISPs. "Blocking, throttling, pay-for-priority fast lanes and other efforts to come between consumers and the Internet are now things of the past, "he said in 2015". They counter that internet providers will slowly and quietly begin manipulating the internet with moves that will change the web from a level playing field to one tilted in favor of big companies. Several states including NY and Washington, have passed regulations that impose net neutrality on a local level.
