Board room of Comcast, AT&T, and others must be popping open the champagne about now.

Get out your wallet. The up-charges are coming.

It still has to go through the senate and congress which I don't think it will.

If NN is still taken down, then it's time that responsibility is back on us to take control with our money.

I didn't think the FCC was for sale. I guess high bidder wins and there go our rates and service. The grand experiment, the Internet and it almost worked.

I listened to Rush Limbaugh today. In his mind, anything with government control is a bad thing.
I was like Rush, I agree with you on a lot of things, but not this one.
It's gonna get to the point where I hope a "bill payers union" forms.
Guess what Comcast....? You wanna screw your customers over, we will stop bill payment or cancel service

Very few people expressing opinions on it really understand it and the implications (i.e. the mouthpieces on the radio et al); certain groups packaged it and made it sound like no one would want it

Comcast told me today on the phone that my $19.99 for 10mbps service was being automatically upgraded to 25mbps for no change in price...
Sounds good to me...

I still haven't been able to get anyone to explain what it is or isn't rationally without getting heated politically.

Just skip over the political paragraphs if you don't want to read those parts.

It does not have to go through Congress. The FCC created net neutrality and now they took it away today. Congress can override the FCC but that won't happen. FCC is 3-2 Republican and voted 3-2 to remove net neutrality. Both the Senate and House, and then President are all Republican, so Congress won't override the FCC unless this gets super bad and by then, the horses are out of the barn.

I don't remember the specifics, but I think some ISPs were selectively throttling some websites and streaming services. I think Netflix was upset about some ISPs slowing down their service or Netflix having to pay some ISPs for a faster streams.

Edited to add a link to a 2014 article which describes what I was saying above:

What does that guy know about neutrality, he sold out just like the rest of the government.

Welcome back to AOL, where every little thing has a surcharge to it.

The biggest impact would be on NetFlix. Those guys were responsible for a lot of the cord cutting and I'm sure Comcast and the rest of the Hollywood would not mind blocking them out or charge a cable TV equivalent price.

Now that Comcast is entering cell phone market, it'll be interesting if they will strong arm their way into it and make you pay extra for cable internet if you don't use comcast cellular.
