Why is net neutrality such a big deal?
With the end of net neutrality, Broadband providers insist they won't do anything that harms the "internet experience" for consumers. Under the new policy, a violation might occur when regulators find out that an Internet provider has been blocking websites without saying so. The rule stipulates that every ISP must clearly disclose their practices to consumers and that the Federal Trade Commission will regulate any ISP that imposes unfair or deceptive practices.
While the now-defunct net neutrality rules didn't specifically address interchange disputes, they did give the FCC broad latitude to oversee the "general conduct" of broadband providers to determine if the companies were being anticompetitive or interfering with customers' ability to access internet sites and services. ISPs usually offer zero-rating plans to promote a particular service that they own or have a stake in.

Internet providers could choose to prioritize their own content and services over those of rivals.
"Those "fast lanes" will put those who won't or can not pay in the slow lane, making the internet look a lot like cable TV", Gigi Sohn, a counselor to former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler and a staunch supporter of net neutrality, told CNNMoney.
Should the CRA reversal fail, the next best option rests with the courts and the numerous lawsuits that have been filed against the FCC for ignoring the public interest. Governors in five states-Hawaii, Montana, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont-have signed executive orders similar to Oregon's law covering service to the states.
