WASHINGTON  – What’s known as the Net Neutrality rule is officially going out the window today.

Net Neutrality means that internet providers have to treat everyone online equally. In other words: no speeding up, slowing down or blocking specific websites or online services.

The rule passed under President Obama, but the Trump Administration scrapped it in December.



The Federal Communications Commission said the repeal, which goes into effect today, will remove problematic regulations.

Opponents say the repeal gives internet providers the power to choke competitors and new technologies.

Some lawmakers, states and tech companies are still fighting to save the rule.
