A Crushing Defeat for Net NeutralityA Crushing Defeat for Net Neutrality

 If you’re familiar with Net Neutrality, you know that the Obama Administration was pushing six principles that would define a free and open internet. The Trump Administration threw them out. California was so mad about it that it wrote its own Net Neutrality law, which the Trump Administration and a bunch of cable and telecom trade associations sued to overturn.
