In December, the Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to repeal Obama-era net neutrality regulations, meaning rules barring internet providers from blocking or slowing content, or giving special treatment to certain content are gone.

Today, the landmark U.S. “net neutrality” rules officially expired and new regulations handing providers broad new power over how consumers can access the internet will take effect.

Without these protections consumers might feel slower Internet speeds and looming higher costs for broadband delivery.

Derick Pierson, president and founder of Blacktech Week, breaks it down here:

 

More than 20 states have sued the FCC, and a number of governors have passed executive orders requiring internet service providers doing business with their states to uphold net neutrality. In May, the Senate passed the Congressional Review Act, a way to overrule the FCC but there has been no movement in the House. Congress can still save net neutrality.
