The rules enshrine the principle of net neutrality into EU law: no blocking or throttling or discrimination of online content, applications and services. Every European must be able to have access to the open internet and all content and service providers must be able to provide their services via a high-quality open internet. Under these rules, blocking, throttling and discrimination of internet traffic by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) is not allowed in the EU, save for three exhaustive exceptions (compliance with legal obligations; integrity of the network; congestion management in exceptional and temporary situations) and users are free to use their favourite apps and services no matter the offer they subscribe to.

Poor media moguls, they miss being the only ones to tell you whats going on in the world. If they have their way they will return to the days before the internet, when the only information one received was top down, one way dissemination from tv, radio and newspapers.
This is a good point, with the Net Neutrality laws getting shot down by Trump's FCC Chairman, I bet most of the internet won't even be accessible anymore. As much as I don't agree with alt-right online media, I think it should have the right to have a presence online. Even ATS could be in danger with this.
