    Internet neutrality repealed; legal challenges from consumer advocates announced

    FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburnt, said that Republicans were “handing the keys to the internet” to a “handful of multi-billion-dollar corporations”.

    The US Federal Communications Commission has voted to repeal sweeping 2015 net neutrality rules, in a move that gives internet service providers a free hand to slow or block websites and apps as they see fit, or charge more for faster speeds. The approval of FCC chairman Ajit Pai's proposal marked a victory for internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon Communications and could recast the digital landscape.
