The battle for Net Neutrality has been on-going for the past year. The Obama administration set regulations so that online service providers must treat all internet traffic the same, without slowing down or blocking content for competition providers. Meaning a internet company who services out Hulu, cannot slow down connection for those who use Netflix.

With no more regulation rules, some customers worry that companies will now charge us whatever they want for internet services. The FCC chairman talked to CBS, promoting positivity with the new regulations, saying it is a good for consumers. Adding that companies must be transparent, telling the FCC all business plans available to customers to keep prices low, but will this stop companies from over charging customers for existing or new internet plans?
