Net Neutrality Vote Slated For Thursday

What does that mean for you?

On Thursday December 14, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), led by chairman Ajit Pai, will vote to repeal the net neutrality rules it put in place in 2015 during the Obama administration.

Pai's proposal, named the Restoring Internet Freedom order, would enable internet service providers (ISPs), like Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, and Verizon, to favor their own sites and services and charge customers fees to access — or at the very least, quickly load — rival sites.

In other words, you would no longer be able to access every website on the internet under your current, monthly fee. 

I wanted to know how this could affect the average internet user and I wanted to dispell any rumors that have been circulating about net neutraility. 

I talked to Ryan Radia with the Competitive Enterprise Institute about what could be changing.
