F.C.C. – The Federal Communications Commission of USA has voted for to discard the Net Neutrality that we are currently enjoying across the globe.
On Dec. 14, 2017, the FCC’s Republican majority approved Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to gut the Net Neutrality protections.

What is Net Neutrality?
Net neutrality is the standard that ensures the internet service providers, or ISPs, must treat all traffic equally through the internet.
Without the Net Neutrality rules, organizations like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon will have the capacity to make major decisions and choose which sites, conpany and applications succeed.
These organizations would now be able to back off their rivals’ substance or square political feelings they can’t help contradicting. They can charge additional expenses to the few big organizations that can bear to pay for particular service — consigning every other to a slower level of service.
Net Neutrality is the Internet’s moral: It preserves our right to communicate freely online.
“Net neutrality is the secret sauce that has made the internet awesome”, said Eric Allen of Vox Media.
In 2015, during the Obama administration, a huge number of activists constrained the Federal Communications Commission to embrace noteworthy Net Neutrality standard that keep the web free and open — enabling individuals to share and access data of their interest without intervention.
The FCC isn’t simply respecting it so ISPs don’t need to take after the guidelines. Ajit Pai, a previous Verizon legal counselor and a Trump deputy, disregarded the protest across the globe, against his decision, from a huge number of individuals, administrators, organizations and public-interest groups.
Who will profit by the repulse of net neutrality?
The nullification is great news for Facebook, Google, Amazon, and the other big internet companies that have money and can bear to pay any tolls set up by the internet providers.
Though nothing will change instantly for consumers, however, internet providers, like Comcast have begun to give suggestions that they’re prepared and willing to start making fast lanes.
Comcast hints at plan for paid fast lanes after net neutrality repeal.
Why is Net Neutrality so urgent to common citizen?
To get a scenario of how Big Tech Company could profit by the repeal of the net neutrality, we can look to some of the developing nations where people are just begun to use internet. In some of those, Google and Facebook have tied up with particular providers. While the providers would regularly charge expensive fee for more extensive internet access, and which can just bear only by those big companies, and there by only their customers will have to access Google and Facebook for free. Just imagine!
How will the next innovation, business or organization rise if internet service providers let just big boss succeed?
