When the FCC announced it would be restoring the net neutrality protections that the FCC eliminated in 2017, the agency said it wanted to restore the 2015 net neutrality protections.  
 
I strongly support this goal, and the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking includes many of the protections included in the 2015 Open Internet Order. 
 
But the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking misses some critical protections in the 2015 Order, creating potential loopholes for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to exploit.
