On December 14, 2017, the FCC voted to repeal the Net Neutrality rules put in place in 2015. The vote was 3-2; the tie broken by Trump-appointed chairman Ajit Pai. This repeal will cause Internet Service Providers to be able to speed up or slow down certain websites. Net Neutrality had ISPs treating all websites equally.

This vote caused a lot of controversy. Even before the vote was cast, many people were fighting to try to stop the vote. There were many protests all over the country. People were sending letters to their representatives in the House and Congress. There was outrage after the vote from consumers, companies, and many states as well. Attorneys general from California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, Oregon, Mississippi, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and even Kentucky plan to sue the FCC.

The vote is done, but the fight to get rid of net neutrality is not over.
