On Thursday the Federal Communications Commission voted to dismantle rules regulating businesses that connect consumers to the internet, opening the way to allow broadband companies reshape Americans’ online data plans according to the services they access.

According to an article by Cecilia Kang, first published on November 21, in the New York Times, the F.C.C. chairman, Ajit Pai, a Republican, appointed by President Trump, has proposed a sweeping repeal of the rules put in place by the Obama administration that prohibit ISPs from blocking or slowing down the delivery of websites, or services and from chargint extra fees for high-quality service.

This was the last in long list of deregulatory initiatives. It will effectively end Net Neutrality.

Australian Consumers should expect similar initiatives in our market.
