The FCC Says Net Neutrality Will End On June 11


The FCC announced on Thursday that the 2015 Open Internet Order will formally cease on June 11. The order established federal protections for net neutrality and barred internet service providers from blocking or throttling legal content online. When the Order terminates, the agency’s new rules, passed by the commission’s Republican majority in December, will go into effect. At that point, internet providers will no longer be prohibited from establishing new fees for content creators to have their sites and services delivered to customers at greater speeds. ISPs will also no longer be prohibited from censoring or throttling content whenever they see fit.
