The US has officially repealed rules that governed the way net providers treated the data that travelled across their networks. The net neutrality rules said companies had to treat all data equally.

Enacted in 2015, the rules sought to stop providers giving preferential treatment to sites and services that paid them to accelerate their data, critics fear repealing them may see consumers charged extra for anything more than the most basic service.

Public protests greeted the Federal Communications Commission's plan to end use of the rules, with many saying it could have an impact on free speech, but, in December, the FCC voted to repeal the rules. And the regulations expired on Monday.


We need only sit back now and watch the consumer level web access suffer as companies fall over themselves to promote their own vested self interest .
