‘Net neutrality’ is ending. Here’s how your internet use could change

13 June, 2018, 18:40 | Author: Sammy Rose

"So issues that are coming up right now, people are seeing from a very personal perspective".

Pai told CBS that he doesn't believe regulating the internet in the same way phone networks are regulated is the best way to achieve the goal of a "free and open" internet.

No Blocking: broadband providers may not block access to legal content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices. The FCC's new rules also require ISPs disclose publicly any blocking or throttling they engage in, as well as reveal any deal in which they prioritize traffic.

Furthermore, the ISPs could also throttle or even block competing services. It will then be evaluated based on whether or not the activity is anti-competitive.

The rules, enacted by the administration of President Barack Obama in 2015, prohibited internet providers from charging more for certain content or from giving preferential treatment to certain websites. "Our approach includes strong consumer protections", Pai writes, saying that the FTC - an organization with minimal regulatory powers and no specialist knowledge of the complicated telecoms industry - is the fearless regulator we all deserve.

But consumer advocacy groups have been less than optimistic.

"If the companies decide we don't like this particular organization or what they stand for so we're not going to let it go out to the people that we provide services to".

Why was net neutrality repealed?

The concern among net neutrality advocates is that the repeal could give internet providers too much control over how online content is delivered. A small start-up company may not have the financial resources to essentially buy its way into the club that gets preferential treatment - which would make trying to compete with the giants almost impossible. Consumer groups have charged that when zero-rating plans are used to promote services owned by the broadband providers, or by companies that pay the providers to market them, they are akin to fast lanes.

The repeal could also change how customers are billed for services, both for good and bad. They're anxious the providers will charge consumers extra to reach particular sites and services in a speedy manner, either by directly billing them or by charging companies like Netflix, which could be expected to pass on the costs to their subscribers.

The internet probably won't immediately become (more of) a dystopian nightmare. Initially, this might be viewed as a positive by consumers looking to save money on their streaming media.

Martin said broadband providers probably won't mess with existing services like Netflix, as that could alienate consumers.

Is there a chance the repeal is, well, repealed?

Late last week, Senators were sending letters to House Speaker Paul Ryan in the hopes of pushing him to schedule a vote on the issue. In November, Farhad Manjoo argued in his New York Times column that the internet had already been dying a slow death and that the repeal of net neutrality rules would only hasten its demise.

Net Neutrality, a term coined by Columbia University media law professor and former NY state lieutenant governor candidate Tim Wu, is a rule where all telecommunication companies must treat all data equality and may not discriminate or charge differently.

This local legislation could lead to a legal showdown, however.
