FCC Claims Net Neutrality is Back Following Vote to Regulate ISPs

While the FCC touts the revised ruling as a step towards net neutrality, digital experts are more skeptical of the move.

Stanford professor Barbara van Schewick warned that the FCC ruling has several loopholes that could allow ISPs to still drive up prices of people's internet bills.

According to van Schewick, the ruling does not cover ISPs injecting additional prices on people's bills by promoting their so-called "fast lanes" for lesser traffic, faster 5G connection, and better gaming connection.

With more people now reliant on a data connection for their livelihood and education, the analyst expects that the FCC ruling would not provide much help in reducing people's bills.
