FCC Prepares To Dismantle Net Neutrality

The FCC is preparing to dismantle the Net Neutrality regulations enacted under the Obama administration. The commission’s plan, revealed yesterday, will be a huge win for telecom providers, but may result in slower Internet service for many consumers. The proposed plan has communications corporations like AT&T and Verizon, who support the changes, battling big tech firms like Facebook and Google who vehemently oppose them. The next three weeks will yield intense lobbying from both sides as the regulations are scheduled for review on December 14.
