The 2015 Open Internet Rules were recently repealed by the FCC on a 3-2, party-line vote. What does this mean for home Internet users? Who will protect consumers? How will the change affect innovation and entrepreneurship? Will there be more investment in broadband deployment? Will interconnection strategies change? Will information be censored for political, commercial, or other reasons? At this special panel, sponsored by the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP), experts will talk about what to expect following the FCC vote.
