Cox. “Implications of the Reversal of Net Neutrality Rules and Next Steps to Protect the Open Internet.” Research Library Issues, no. 293 (2018): 12–25. https://doi.org/10.29242/ rli.293.3. Editor's note: This piece was revised slightly on April 23, 2018, to update information regarding the date the net neutrality rules will be repealed. A portion of the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) order reversing the rules will go into effect today, 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, but the bulk of the new order that impacts net neutrality will not go into effect until the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved the FCC's actions.
