The End of Net Neutrality Is Here
Net neutrality ends on Monday, June 11.

The end of net neutrality is here.  

"Now, on June 11, these unnecessary and harmful internet regulations will be repealed and the bipartisan, light-touch approach that served the online world well for nearly 20 years will be restored," said Federal Communications Commission Chairman Aji Pai last month.

The Senate passed a resolution in May that would overturn the FCC's dismantling of net neutrality but the House has yet to take up the measure. Senators sent letters to House Speak Paul Ryan urging him to schedule a vote. 

The Republican-led FCC voted along party lines in December to repeal the net neutrality rules, which were intended to prevent internet providers from blocking, speeding up, or slowing down access to specific online services.

Over 20 states have pushed back on the repeal by filing lawsuits. Some states have passed legislation to ensure that the rules are still effective within their borders.
