Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai will reveal plans to his fellow commissioners on Tuesday to fully dismantle the agency's Obama-era net neutrality regulations, people familiar with the plans said, in a major victory for the telecom industry in the long-running policy debate.

Is this my understanding of it that companies like VM would be able to charge to view the likes of youtube on it's services?

Sounds a bit like NK and China you only see what they want you to see

Re: FCC plans total repeal of net neutrality rules

Yes, ultimately, the combination of talk of "fake news" doing the rounds, along with ISPs seeking to maximise revenue, only certain branded "trusted" services will be available - as packages - and everything else will be either expensive or gone. It will happen because, financially, that's how humans behave - and it is logical that the right people will end up getting paid by the right other people to make sure that happens in line with their interests. The government will go along with it due to the "revolving door" effect.

All the more reason to use a VPN.
