The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted on April 25 to reinstate net neutrality regulations, which block service providers such as ComcastAT&T and Verizon to stratify the Internet with preferred traffic.

The commission voted 3-2 along party lines.

Under former US President Donald Trump’s administration in 2017, net neutrality laws were deemed unnecessary and repealed.

Permanent US President Joe Biden issued an executive order in 2021 to encourage the FCC to restore net neutrality.

FCC guidelines previously banned such tactics under rules that dictated “net neutrality” and did not allow ISPs to charge consumers extra for faster access to certain Internet content compared to other Internet content providers. others. The rules were adopted in 2010. Comcast and then Verizon Communications Inc. challenged the FCC rules. The court ruled in 2014 that while the FCC has the authority to oversee broadband communications, it does not have a mandate to impose anti-discrimination rules on broadband service providers.

The FCC then voted in 2015 to transition ISPs from Title I information services to Title II public carriers, thereby subjecting ISPs to net neutrality protocols.
