But now there are fewer rules governing how internet service providers can operate.

Lawmakers and tech companies are still fighting to save net neutrality.

But the FCC's outgoing rules already allowed broadband providers leeway to create special data channels for such services where the net-neutrality provisions wouldn't apply.

Supporters of net neutrality are concerned that without it, we could lose access to a free and open internet.

Meanwhile, even before the end of the net-neutrality rules, several broadband providers, including AT&T and Verizon, were experimenting with so-called zero-rating programs.

Today marks the first day of a post-net neutrality world, one in which rules introduced during the Obama administration under previous FCC chairman Tom Wheeler are officially repealed.

However, in the op-ed Pai does not defend against any of the common arguments for Net Neutrality.

Consumers aren't likely to see immediate changes following Monday, June 11, 2018 formal repeal of Obama-era internet rules that had ensured equal treatment for all.

Opponents to this change fear that the repeal of net neutrality rules will open the door for service providers to censor content online or to charge more for certain types of content.

"By refusing to bring up the Senate-passed resolution to restore net neutrality, which passed the Senate by a powerful bipartisan vote, House Republican leaders gave a green light to the big ISPs to charge middle-class Americans, small business owners, schools, rural Americans, and communities of color more to use the internet", Schumer said. As a result, the internet could become more like the TV networks, where you pay for different packages of internet services.

The Senate voted 52-47 last month to overturn the FCC's plan, but the House, which is doesn't intend to take up the issue-making the Senate's move largely symbolic.

Other states, including New York, Vermont, and Montana, are using executive orders and various other means of reinstating net neutrality, but at the moment, Washington is the only state to pass a bill protecting it. OR passed similiar legislation, but it won't go into effect until next year, as Motherboard reports. "In 2015, the FCC stripped the FTC-the nation's premier consumer protection agency- of its authority over internet service providers".

But a battle for votes in the House remains. Some states, like New Jersey, Washington, and California, have been actively working on state laws that would keep net neutrality alive within their jurisdictions.
