The controversial repeal of Obama-era net neutrality protections is officially set to take effect on Monday, despite ongoing efforts from members of Congress, state officials, tech companies and advocacy groups to save the rules. With the repeal of the new rules and the general-conduct provisions, the FCC will no longer have any oversight over such programs.

The recent FCC's staunch opposition to net neutrality has been met with waves of public backlash, at one point amounting to almost 22 million comments being submitted to the its website, as well as criticism from policy experts who say a repeal of the rules will let internet service providers give preferential treatment to some websites, including their own. He has argued that the regulations are too restrictive on businesses and discourage them from investing in network upgrades that could make your Internet service faster and better.

Net neutrality means that Internet providers have to treat everyone equally online. A small start-up company may not have the financial resources to essentially buy its way into the club that gets preferential treatment - which would make trying to compete with the giants almost impossible.

The repeal could also change how customers are billed for services, both for good and bad.

That may sound annoying for Netflix users, but it's easy to imagine farther-reaching consequences given the ubiquity of the internet, which now functions more like electricity than an information service.

"Our framework will protect consumers and promote better, faster Internet access and more competition", Paid wrote in an op-ed published on CNET on Sunday.

Is there a chance the repeal is, well, repealed? However, the bill has yet to be voted on in the House. Wheeler was chairman when the rules passed three years ago.
