Broadband Providers Are Quietly Taking Advantage of an Internet Without Net Neutrality Protections

Some proponents of the Dec 2017 repeal of network neutrality argue that a year after the decision, the internet is still functioning -- but that doesn’t mean the internet isn’t changing. Consumers may not have noticed broadband providers making network management adjustments, because they are purposefully small and gradual, but they are crucial steps in preventing an open internet. There have been several potential net neutrality violations since the repeal went into effect. If the repeal continues, the way consumers access the internet will gradually change.
