Finally that day has come, when after a lot of delays, the FCC’s repeal of Net Neutrality came into action. What does this mean exactly and what comes next? Expensive internet with limitations or a legal purgatory?
How is the world especially the US is reacting to this? Let’s find out:
#NetNeutrality was officially repealed today, which means internet service providers (ISPs) are no longer prohibited from slowing down, favoring, or blocking websites at will.
Are you for our against a bill that ensures net neutrality continues in Oklahoma?

As of today, internet service companies can now violate #NetNeutrality — but they won’t start right away, and they won’t be obvious about it. https://t.co/8S8U5yY0J7

Internet service providers shouldn’t be allowed to block, slow down, or manipulate consumers’ access to the internet. We must restore #NetNeutrality to keep the internet open and free.

#NetNeutrality is just one piece of the puzzle…
Privatization, deregulation, voter suppression, attacks on unions: these policies are all connected by an uber-wealthy minority.
The only defense against the donor class is an organized working class. ✊ #MondayMotivation #Janus pic.twitter.com/IELaIENF2B

The repeal of #NetNeutrality rules goes into effect today, but this fight is not over. House Democrats are trying to gather support to force a vote to save Net Neutrality just like we did in the Senate.
Take action & demand your representative save the free & fair internet.

#NetNeutrality ended today helping big corporations & those with $$$ to pay, leaving everyone else behind. This is crazy. The Internet has always been the equalizer – equal opportunity for all. It’s not too late to fix this – the House can pass our resolution to #SaveTheInternet

The future of the internet is at stake. We need to maintain pressure on the @FCC’s #NetNeutrality repeal. I was proud to have vote against repeal last month. Now I urge my House colleagues to follow suit!
