As dramatic as the Senate special election in Alabama was earlier this week, an equally important vote will take place on Thursday morning as the FCC decides whether or not to repeal net neutrality regulations established in 2015. The regulations force internet providers to treat all online services equally, but if the FCC votes to repeal them, providers will be free to speed up some websites and services while slowing down -- or even blocking -- others.
If you want to watch along live as the commission casts its votes, you can do so on the FCC website starting at 10:30 AM ET. Despite the fact that studies show an overwhelming majority of Americans (Republicans and Democrats alike) oppose the repeal, Chairman Ajit Pai and the two GOP commissioners are expected to pass the proposal.
