Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai finally delivered what telecoms have been demanding for years: an end to regulations that treat them as a utility.
But both of these approaches are expected to lead to court challenges by the FCC, whose new policy on net neutrality contains explicit language that tries to preempt states from doing exactly what the legislation and executive orders are meant to do.
"ISPs could curate what online content and services most people will have access to, and which ones will only be available to those who are willing to and can afford to pay extra", Schaub added. "Plain and simple, thanks to the FCC's rollback of Net Neutrality, Internet providers have the legal green light, the technical ability, and business incentive to discriminate and manipulate what we see, read, and learn online". The longer-term ramifications of a world without net neutrality is what concerns proponents of a fair and open internet - issues like a threat to free flow of information and a hazard to speech rights.
Pai told CBS that he doesn't believe regulating the internet in the same way phone networks are regulated is the best way to achieve the goal of a "free and open" internet.
As already noted, today's the day that the FCC's 2015 net neutrality rules are officially eliminated. In addition, states can not "make their own internet policy" under current federal law.
If net neutrality is lost, internet service providers (ISPs) like AT&T and Verizon could create special "fast lanes" for content providers willing to pay more. "They now have nearly free reign over what content their subscribers will have access to", he wrote.
A group of 22 states have sued the FCC over the repeal.
What exactly is net neutrality?
At the FCC, Pai said the agency is "keeping all options on the table".
A group representing major cable companies and TV networks said Monday that "despite a new round of outlandish claims and doomsday predictions from groups dedicated to stoking political controversy, consumers will be able to see for themselves that their internet service will keep working as always has and will keep getting better".
A few blocks away from the FCC, another legal battle is crescendoing: the Justice Department's war with AT&T over its $85 billion bid to buy Time Warner, announced in October 2016.
The fees would be paid by the video services, such as Hulu, and could be passed along to consumers in higher subscription rates.
