The repeal of Obama era net neutrality is a repeal of regulations and not actual law, so it is not permanent. It is possible that in the years to come the FCC of a congressional session could restore net neutrality or pass legislation to formalize it, or formally eliminating the possibility of returning. It is unlikely that the present-day Republican Congress will write net neutrality into the law.

The party has generally been opposed to net neutrality regulation, which members have argued is overly burdensome. In 2015, the FCC ruled in favor of net neutrality by reclassifying broadband as a common carrier under Title II of the Communicatory Act of 1934 and section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1966. Currently, the FCC still voted in favor of repeal.

Net neutrality has been saved by the senators who voted that this will be kept. Net neutrality means that there should be no discrimination with what people are checking online. Internet service providers should not discriminate people who avail of their services and should give equal opportunities without blocking some websites for no reason.

There are still a lot of things that may possibly occur about this but the fact that it is still ongoing means that people will still learn more about this.
