FCC Restores Net Neutrality in US: What It Means for the Future of the Internet

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the United States recently voted to reinstate the rules on net neutrality, reversing the repeal imposed during the Trump administration. This decision has reignited the debate on a crucial issue for the future of the Internet.

FCC reinstates net neutrality rules

Net neutrality is based on the principle that i Internet Service Providers (ISPs) they shouldn't discriminate between different types of online content. Otherwise, the risk is that they may slow down the connection speed for some sites or services, offering paid “preferential lanes” for others. Something that users fear could make the web less free and democratic.

As The Verge explains, to achieve this goal the FCC has reclassified ISPs come common carriers according to Titolo II del Communications Act: this will allow you to have authority over suppliers. According to the chairwoman of the FCC, Jessica Rosenworcelthis approach is useful because “access to the Internet has now become a sessential service for every aspect of modern lifeand as such requires basic supervision.”

Suppliers, however, oppose the reclassification, fearing that could also lead to price regulation in the future against the interests of the market. However, they say they have never violated the principles of net neutrality.

The FCC introduced net neutrality rules in 2015 by the Obama administration, but then repealed in 2017 under the leadership of the Trump-appointed FCC chairman, Ajit Pai. Now the FCC has updated the 2015 rulesarguing that they will give the agency greater powers to oversee internet outages and address national security risks.

Republicans criticized the FCC's vote, which passed 3-2 with the support of Democratic commissioners. They think it's a symptom of excessive authority by federal agencies. However, Democrats think the courts will uphold the legality of the decision.
