Net Neutrality Ends Tomorrow, FCC On Track To Remove Rules As Scheduled
13 June, 2018, 03:45
In 2015, the Title II Order reclassified the internet as a telecommunications service, which is regulated like a public utility.
Federal regulations meant to protect net neutrality formally end today, fulfilling a promise by the Trump administration to scrap FCC rules approved in 2015. 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.
"It's an uphill fight", says Chris Lewis, VP of Public Knowledge, a tech advocacy group that has urged the House to take action.
"It's business as usual on the internet today - movies are streaming, e-commerce is thriving, and advocates are using the internet to make their voices heard", said Jonathan Spalter, president of broadband trade group USTelecom, which counts AT&T and Verizon as members, in a statement Monday. But unlike with the issues of blocking or slowing access to internet services, they've been much less definitive on fast lanes. FCC chairman Ajit Pai joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why he thinks the rollback is "tremendously positive" for consumers. Although the vote occurred months ago, it took time for the results to take effect. 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. Some states are moving to restore net neutrality, and lawsuits are pending. So consumers should have access to updated information about data caps, paid-prioritization or any other changes a service provider may make. In a phone interview, Hansen told me that during the bill's hearings, even the giant cable companies said they agree with the principles of net neutrality.
Providers have said they won't block or throttle legal websites, but have left open the potential for charging more for transport of some data.WATCH: What is net neutrality?

Nor could they charge Netflix and other video services extra to reach viewers more smoothly.
Net neutrality rules which prevented broadband providers from discriminating against certain websites have been officially rolled back in the United States, even as opposition groups fight to save the regulations.
Another misleading ISP claim is that they want to get rid of Title II, and not net neutrality rules in general.
As for Congress, the Senate issued a vote to overturn the decision in May and the House of Representatives now has the opportunity to do the same. The vote on the repeal of net neutrality rules in December passed in a 3-2 vote. Governors in five states-Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont-have signed executive orders similar to Oregon's law covering service to the states.
Also, the Senate voted to save net neutrality, though that effort isn't likely to become law.
