As the Drum reported yesterday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted 3-2 on the passage of net neutrality.
The controversial proposal, allowed for freedom of speech over the internet and ensured that internet providers couldn’t discriminate against users based on website content.
For the most part, democrats, including President Obama, have approved of the passage, while republicans have opposed it, threatening to fight the decision.
Industry professionals are also split on the decision. Some believe it was a necessary step toward protecting the internet, while others believe it limits freedom online.

"The internet has become an essential part of every day life much like electricity and water. We believe that yesterday’s ruling is pro business and pro consumer. It ensures equal access for all and preserves our right to communicate freely online."
