Tech: Here's how to watch the FCC's vote on net neutrality

FCC chair Ajit Pai.

The vote will take place during the FCC's regular monthly meeting.

The FCC will vote on Thursday on whether to repeal net neutrality rules that were put in place in 2015.

The vote will be livestreamed on the FCC website starting from 10.30 a.m. ET. With Republicans who oppose those rules in control of the commission, the proposal is basically guaranteed to pass.

You can watch the vote live here.

Business Insider will be attending the vote and will have full coverage from 10.30 a.m. ET.

Net neutrality is the principle that all traffic on the internet should be treated equally. Under net neutrality protections, internet service providers are barred from blocking, slowing, or providing preferred treatment to particular sites and services. The rules are designed to keep the internet open to all comers and give everyone a fair shot.

But the latest proposal from the FCC would reverse the designation of broadband providers as telecommunications companies and do away with the three major net neutrality prohibitions. Under the new proposal, companies would be able to block, slow, or provide fast lanes to particular sites or services.
