FCC votes to repeal net neutrality rules that stop ISPs from blocking, slowing web traffic

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to roll back popular regulations barring internet service providers from blocking or slowing web traffic.

Republican FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s push to tear down the utility-like oversight put in place in 2015 drew the ire of Democrats, consumer advocates and online megasites such as Facebook, Amazon and Google.

Ending net neutrality “is not going to destroy the internet. It is not going to end the internet as we know it. It is not going to kill democracy,” Pai said ahead of the vote.

But deep-pocketed websites will now be able to pay for “fast lane” service that smaller companies can’t afford, providers can choose which sites receive preferential treatment and the cost can be passed on to the consumer.
