The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and its competitors have been working to revive communications with the people and businesses who rely on them.
They have proposed a series of changes that aim to ensure that broadband services work better, and that communications continue to flow in the face of ever-increasing competition.
These include a change to the way the US Government provides telecommunications subsidies, and a new way to pay for broadband service.
But what’s in it for consumers?
Here’s our guide to what to expect.

The proposed changes are called “net neutrality”, and they are intended to improve internet service for all users.
The Federal Communications Board (Fcc) has proposed to amend Title II of the Communications Act to make it easier for internet service providers (ISPs) to charge different rates for different types of services.
ISPs could charge different prices to different internet users depending on what they are delivering, such as video streaming or high-speed internet connections.
For example, Netflix could charge more for the video streaming it provides, and more for high-bandwidth connections.
The US Government’s proposed net neutrality changes would allow internet service companies to charge the same price to all users, regardless of what they use.
For instance, Netflix might charge $5 per month for video streaming, but a customer who uses Netflix would pay $20 per month to the ISP, and the other users in the US would pay a similar amount.
The FCC has proposed rules to address this issue.
Under the new rules, ISPs would be able to set their own prices and conditions for services that deliver video streaming.
This would ensure that consumers can access the internet at the same time that they are watching Netflix, for example.
For a small business or an individual that wants to have access to a high-capacity internet connection, this change would be a welcome one.
However, for an internet service provider that provides internet access for millions of Americans, it would be an enormous change that would require a lot of work.
The proposed rules would also need to be approved by the FCC.
However it’s important to note that the rules have not yet been approved by Congress.
The changes proposed by the US government would be designed to address some of the biggest challenges facing the internet, from blocking content and slowing down online traffic to charging for bandwidth.
However the changes would also have to go through a lengthy approval process that would be complicated by the fact that many companies have already filed comments on the issue, and other internet service giants are likely to do the same.
The final decision will be made by the Federal Communications Commision, the agency responsible for overseeing internet service, and this will be a major step forward for the internet.
It’s expected that the final rules will be released later this year, and will be the first step towards a “net-neutrality” era.
However, the final FCC rules may also face some significant problems.
While the proposed rules have the support of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, they are also likely to face fierce opposition from the Democratic-controlled Senate.
That means that the FCC will have to work with Congress and the rest of the US to get the rules passed, and it’s likely that the changes will be challenged in court.
It will be up to the FCC to decide whether or not the proposed changes will ultimately succeed.
If it decides that the net neutrality rules are insufficient, then internet service would need to change drastically in order to continue to work as intended.
However if the FCC decides that a net neutrality rule is necessary to protect the internet from the harms caused by internet service monopolies, then the proposed net-neutralism rules could actually benefit the internet as a whole.
The US has had internet service since 1996, and net neutrality is the principle that all internet traffic should be treated equally.
The FCC’s proposed rules will aim to prevent ISPs from prioritising certain types of internet traffic over others.
The net neutrality process has been fraught with controversy, but many people think the FCC’s proposals are the best possible way to address the issues at hand.
Some have even called for the FCC itself to repeal the proposed reforms.
We contacted the FCC for comment on the proposed internet neutrality rules and we will update this article if and when we receive a response.
