The FCC has repealed net neutrality regulations put in place by Obama in 2015. No one’s quite sure how long it will take users to see the difference (as changes are expected to take a few months to roll out), but here’s what you need to know about it.
The regulations that were repealed stopped Internet providers from favoring content that paid more for their spot. Without these regulations, companies like Verizon, Comcast or any service provider could adjust how fast certain content can be downloaded by the users (maybe having users pay extra for certain content).
This all puts a stop to your ability to see and consume things from your peers freely and IN THE WAY YOU WANT. If net neutrality goes away, more ads and promotional material will be thrown at us on the web. Don’t we already pay enough for the internet? Buckle up people.
