The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in December 2017 voted to undo the net neutrality rules put into place in 2015. The principle behind net neutrality is that Internet Service Providers (ISPs), like Verizon, AT&T and Comcast, treat all content equally. Providers are barred from deliberately speeding up or slowing down traffic from specific websites, and from putting forth their own content at an advantage over rivals. In practical terms, it means that the consumer can load every website, app, video, etc., equally, regardless of where the content is hosted. An ISP may not charge more for sites that stream movies or promote a specific agenda. It basically levels the playing field.
