Internet providers are about to have more control over how you see content.
The FCC is set to start rolling back net neutrality today, rules that have prevented internet service providers from blocking content, slowing down service or prioritizing content, possibly for payment. The rules were passed by the FCC when Democrats had the majority. With only one Democrat now on the FCC commission, the rules are widely expected to be repealed.
Many of those who wanted to see net neutrality gone feel its anti-competitive. Supporters of keeping the rules in place are planning a rally this morning before the FCC vote. Those same people are stressing that if the public doesn’t pressure their Congress members, the American people will lose control of their internet.
