The US Federal Communications Commission has voted to overturn rules that force ISPs to treat all data traffic as equal.
Commissioners at the agency voted two-to-one to end a "net neutrality" order enacted in 2015.
Ajit Pai, head of the FCC, said the rules demanding an open internet harmed jobs and discouraged investment.



Title II rules overturned. Death of the internet boys.

Their are reports of Comcast users not being able to access archive.org. People are assuming Comcast is now blocking this site for users. Stay tuned!

Did Net Neutrality laws go away over night when this was voted for? This seems like people jumping to conclusions.
I can't find any news articles on it...unless Comcast is blocking those too!

I did find this on r/conspiracy

If you sort by newest comments it seems like the issue is resolved. I'm sure it wasn't Comcast doing it on purpose and people jumping to conclusions

You guys have comcast, does it work for you?!

Amazon, Reddit join internet 'day of action' for net neutrality
Amazon appears to be the largest web company involved in the demonstration and is joined by Reddit, Etsy, Vimeo, Mozilla and others.

There aren’t many details on what the groups are planning for the day of action, but their announcement stressed that the organizing has just begun.

We have more daily active users than Amazon, but I'm humble enough to admit they are probably the larger web company.

The momentum is continuing to build. In the past few days Twitter, Soundcloud, Medium, Adblock, Twilio, and some other big names have joined.

A little more info about the plan: on July 12 websites will display a prominent message on their homepage, and apps and services will send push notifications or do whatever makes the most sense for them to reach as many people as possible. We'll direct people to BattleForTheNet.com, an optimized action site that easily allows anyone to submit a comment to the FCC and Congress at the same time, make a phone call, and sign up to participate in meetings with lawmakers. We'll also have video bumpers that YouTubers and other video creators can use. Basically, everyone should think about how they can use the power of the Internet to reach their audience with a message abotu net neutrality and make it easy for them to take action.

Still no word on what the message will be or how it will help?
