Obama-era federal regulations prevented Internet providers from slowing, blocking or charging websites special fees to get their content in front of users.

Pai claimed in a CNET op-ed that the repeal preserves the Internet as "an open platform where you are free to go where you want" and that it "will protect consumers and promote better, faster Internet access and more competition".
It was put in place by the Obama Administration but President Trump chose to scrap the rule in December.
We gather here today to mark and mourn the death of net neutrality, which, despite a valient fight and 9 million comments to the FCC, officially took its last breath on Monday.at least, if you don't live in Washington state, where, as soon net neutrality died, it was immediately reborn. If you're interested in letting your representatives know where you stand on net neutrality and how you'd like them to vote, you can see a tally of who has and hasn't agreed to support net neutrality here. But unlike with the issues of blocking or slowing access to internet services, they've been much less definitive on fast lanes.
