On Dec. 14, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to undo protections surrounding net neutrality, or the free and open internet. The decision is likely to have serious ramifications for all American internet users and internet-based businesses (including real estate websites). While the internet as we know it hasn’t transformed just yet, the commission said Thursday that some rules would take effect April 23. The FCC under Chairman Ajit Pai published an order in the Federal Register that set that timeline for the changing regulations.
