Today, the protections that “Net Neutrality” offers everyone who uses the Internet officially end, courtesy of the new FCC’s overturning protections that Obama brought to the Internet.
No one knows precisely how Internet Service Providers (ISPs – including Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, etc.) will respond. Many people fear that our bills will go up significantly if we want the same service we have today. People fear that service will be “throttled,” service will slow down and be limited, and that just using the Internet will become more like picking cable TV channels: there will be “fast service” “slow service” and/or websites like my own that may not show up when you search. There are many, many unknowns that you can read more about here in today’s New York Times.
