Net Neutrality Repeal — Impacts to Government

Potential impacts of changes to net neutrality.

by Eric Holdeman / December 15, 2017

I do believe that the "sun will come out tomorrow." But there could be some changes coming to individuals who don't have choices or the buying power of large governments and a location in metro areas. See this Government Technology story, Net Neutrality Repeal: Government IT Officials Respond with Trepidation.

One thing is for sure, the story is not over. A new FCC panel can reverse the decision in the future, or there could be congressional legislation that pre-empts recent decisions. Stay tuned for changes — and, maybe slower connection speeds for apps that don't match your providers' preferences. :(
