With the “Open Internet” rule struck down by a US court, the future of the online landscape is now murkier than ever.
An appeals court in Washington this week ruled unconstitutional a “Net Neutrality” rule that bars broadband Internet providers from discriminating or playing favorites for online services.
Technically they are saying that the FCC never had the right to regulate ISPs in the way that telecoms are regulated, no one is actually saying net neutrality is a bad idea.
It's also important to note that the net neutrality laws never applied to mobile providers, and that has gone alright so far.
