The end of net neutrality could mean you pay for faster access to sites like Facebook

Net neutrality is over, but what does that mean for your pocketbook?

This month, a repeal of net neutrality rules that required regulators to treat all companies using the internet equally went into effect. Before, internet service providers had to treat all websites and content providers the same. People will now, in theory, be able to purchase different internet speeds from their cable provider for different prices, but critics say an end to net neutrality could favor services that pay more to internet service providers.

It’s still illegal to throttle internet content or block certain websites, Brendan Carr, commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission said on Monday.
