FCC votes on rule changes affecting net neutrality

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has voted to change net neutrality rules enacted in 2015.

So, what does this mean?
Members of the FCC believe that the changes, removing the 2015 rules, will benefit consumers and the marketplace.

Firms that pay more will have their data travel faster to reach consumers quicker. That means smaller, poorer firms may suffer and lose customers.

Some companies (Comcast and Charter among them) have "pledged" to treat all data equally, so no special fees for faster treatment.

FB and Google support the rule changes.
