The Federal Communications Commission officially published its order overturning the net neutrality rules in the Federal Register on Thursday, a procedural step that allows for the filing of legal challenges. But a broad array of net neutrality proponents counter that the rules are necessary to prevent broadband providers from engaging in censorship, and from harming competitors.
Broadband companies have said they do not intend to block, slow down or prioritize any web traffic as a result of the FCC's repeal, arguing that it's not in their interest to upset and potentially drive away subscribers.
"The sky is not falling", he said. However, a lot of opposition see it differently, as it would enable certain Internet companies, like Xfinity, to thrive with increased costs.

"It turned a blind eye to all kinds of corruption in our public record - from Russian intervention to fake comments to stolen identities in our files", she said.
"This misguided decision awoke a sleeping giant -the American public- and we won't stop making a ruckus until internet openness is the law of the land", tweeted Democratic FCC commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel, who dissented in December's vote. Despite the appeal, the vote went on as scheduled. Once it's taken down, Internet providers will be able to dictate rules on their service however they see fit, which could affect not only online services like Facebook and Netflix, but also possibly gaming, since a good amount of Internet is required to take part in multiplayer sessions. "This is not right. The FCC is on the wrong side of history and the wrong side of the law and it deserves to have its handiwork revisited, re-examined, and ultimately reversed".
