News video: FCC Files Notices, Net Neutrality to End June 11

A notice from the Federal Communications Commission means net neutrality is set to end on June 11.

But there are still efforts to keep it alive.


FCC Files Notices, Net Neutrality to End June 11

Net neutrality officially has an end date: June 11.  A notice  from the Federal Communications Commission is set to be published Friday, and it finalizes the new rules that will replace net neutrality.  The Obama-era rule required internet service providers to treat all web traffic equally.

But the FCC  voted in December  to repeal that regulation.  Now internet service providers will be able to slow down or speed up certain websites.

The change is controversial, and not everyone is taking the repeal lying down.  Senate Democrats are  trying to use  the Congressional Review Act to overturn the FCC vote and keep net neutrality.

It's a long shot, and the deadline for Congress to act to save net neutrality is June 12.
