It means the internet could end up liking buying channels in a cable tv package. As they are now allowed again to prioritize their own services above others or charge services to get the speed they need to operate which of course is passed on to us. This is not surprising as the FCC head is a former lawyer for Comcast that was doing that exact thing. This not only affects the US but worldwide as much of the internet traffic passes through the States. This only benefits large isps not us as consumers.Also not surprising is the 3-2 vote. 3 Republicans 2 Democrats
