'They don't want to add fuel to the fire, ' Martin said. "After a historic bipartisan vote in the Senate to reverse the FCC, the House must now listen to the 80 percent of Americans who are demanding net neutrality stay on the books". This, according to Pai, "will allow consumers to make an informed decision about which Internet service provider is best for them". "This was a loss for consumers and a mistake we have reversed", Pai wrote. Before 2015 The FTC had control over regulating the internet and it was only for the three years that the FCC had control.
"Internet service providers spent millions of dollars lobbying the Federal Communications Commission to end net neutrality, and they are certainly going to expect a healthy return on that investment", the ACLU blogged last week.
Blocking: Internet service providers could not discriminate against any lawful content by blocking websites or apps.
What's Everyone so Worried About?
Another major concern is that consumers could suffer from pay-to-play deals. A third rule banned the practice of paid prioritization, or the offering of the Internet "fast lanes".
In other words, certain providers could block or slow down sites like Facebook or your favorite news website. Remote workers of all kinds, including freelancers and franchisees in the so-called gig economy, could similarly face higher costs to do their jobs from home.
In December 2017, the FCC voted to repeal those "open internet" rules, reclassifying the internet as an information service, which is subject to less regulation. If companies like Comcast and AT&T can charge more for "internet packages" the same way they charge different prices for cable TV packages, Schaub said people who are already struggling to pay their bills may suffer. Even at the federal level, there is an effort to restore the rules the FCC had in place.
However, while Pai has focused on how the new rules require ISPs to be transparent "about their network management practices", he hasn't touched on some of the most criticized aspects of the repeal: the ability to throttle, prioritize, or block content and internet access.
Lori Miller, with activist group Indivisible Rapid City, believes dumping Net Neutrality was a mistake.
During a speech at Mobile World Congress this year, Pai addressed attendees and gave a concise explanation of why he was against net neutrality.
"The United States is simply making a shift from pre-emptive regulation, which foolishly presumes that every last wireless company is an anti-competitive monopolist, to targeted enforcement based on actual market failure or anti-competitive conduct", he said. Under that approach, the internet was open and free. And today, that repeal has taken effect.
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. Ed Markey of MA wrote on Twitter.
"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. Deregulation could potentially change what you can access on the internet.
Other states, including New York, Vermont, and Montana, are using executive orders and various other means of reinstating net neutrality, but at the moment, Washington is the only state to pass a bill protecting it. OR passed similiar legislation, but it won't go into effect until next year, as Motherboard reports. Siding with AT&T might clear the way for more consolidation, while siding with the government could cause telecom giants to think twice about buying companies in new lines of business.
