FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has said the agency under Obama overstepped its authority when it imposed the 2015 regulations.
Now, they are free of a requirement to treat all web traffic equally and have only to be transparent about how they manage their networks, with any breaches of promises or uncompetitive behavior being investigated by the Federal Trade Commission rather than the telecom-focused FCC.

"At the dawn of the commercial Internet, President [Bill] Clinton and a Republican Congress agreed on a light-touch framework to regulating the Internet". The longer-term ramifications of a world without net neutrality is what concerns proponents of a fair and open internet - issues like a threat to free flow of information and a hazard to speech rights.
"The people saying we can't pass the resolution to #SaveTheInternet in the House are the same people who were saying we couldn't do it in the Senate", Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., a longtime network neutrality advocate and a member of the Senate Commerce Committee. "Ignore them. Just keep fighting". "We don't want to be blocked or throttled or have our online experience subject to the whims of an internet provider".
Mayer explains when it comes to businesses, it will have the biggest impact on large corporations like Amazon and Walmart.
"Following the decision to repeal net neutrality, many Americans anxious that the internet would turn into what cable-tv is: a set of options based on price and preference".
