The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote on a proposal to repeal net neutrality protections on Monday, June 21.
This means that AT&ts wireless broadband provider, Volo Communications, will not be allowed to offer free access to consumers via the company’s FiOS and DirecTV Now service.
AT&t says that its FiOS service is a “broadband” service, meaning that it is designed to reach customers via the wireless network rather than the wired connections.

In this article, we take a look at the different ways that net neutrality advocates see the current rules.
