On June 11, rules governing what’s known as net neutrality went away. The rules were designed to prevent internet service providers from blocking, slowing down or charging money for the delivery of certain content. All data was to be treated equally. They were enacted during the Obama administration, but the Federal Communications Commission voted to rescind them in December. That ruling took effect last week.
FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly was one of three votes to lift net neutrality rules late last year.
