On Thursday afternoon, the Federal Communications Commission officially repealed net neutrality. It was a 3-2 party line vote in favor of a repeal.

Net Neutrality was instated in 2015 during President Barack Obama’s tenure. It’s repeal comes under heavy criticism from many internet users.

Net Neutrality was intended to give equal rights to all websites when it comes to speed and also to prevent ISPs from raising prices on the use of certain websites.
