That's not a good thing

Without net neutrality, small sites like this one are at a serious disadvantage

not trying to disagree, but I thought there was a fair amount of discussion here sometime about how bad a lot of the regs were?

Wish they would break up the monopolies. Much like health care and education we have the worst cost/value in the world. The only regulation they are talking about rolling back is net neutrality.

Net neutrality is a principle that says Internet service providers should treat all traffic on their networks equally. That means companies should not block or slow down access to any website or content on the Web to benefit their own services over those of competitors. In other words, Net Neutrality keeps Internet Service Providers from carving up the internet into privately owned digital highways.

Capitalism is only efficient in the absence of monopolies, and by definition requires competition.

Rolling back net neutrality would not be a good thing for us... or any of the small sites that dot the internet. It would be great for Verizon, Comcast, and other media empires. Net neutrality is not an "Obama" thing, it preceded him, some standards were set during his term due to his tenure timeline.
