The FCC Just Killed Net Neutrality

It finally happened: the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) just voted to end net neutrality — the regulation that prohibits internet service providers from blocking certain services, slowing down particular websites, or charging more to access them. In a close 3-2 vote, the commissioners chose to remove the Obama-era regulations enforcing net neutrality. The vote also signifies a more philosophical shift: the FCC will no longer consider the internet a utility, further restricting the commission’s ability to regulate it.
