The abolition of internet neutrality is becoming the latest chapter in the debate over how the internet should be organized.
The debate, which has been going on for more than 18 years, questioned whether regulation was needed to ensure the company did not restrict content accessed by the public.
The Obama administration's decision to classify broadband internet as a public utility ensures the FCC can make regulations to protect the open Internet. Open Internet means all content is treated the same.
This regulation also serves to protect freedom of speech. This view is supported by consumer protection organizations and Internet companies like Facebook and Google.
