The Federal Communications Commission recently repealed Net Neutrality rules implemented in 2015 and judging by the reaction in some corners one would think they broke the internet. There has been a lot of information swirling around favoring and opposing Net Neutrality.

What is Net Neutrality? What did it do? What does repealing it do? Did the FCC break the internet by repealing it?

Shane Vander Hart discusses this with Dr. Roslyn Layton.

Dr. Layton is a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, where she focuses on evidence-based policy for information, communications, and digital technology industries. She is also a visiting researcher at Aalborg University Center for Communication, Media, and Information Technologies and a vice president at Strand Consult, both in Denmark.

Layton served on the 2016–17 Federal Communications Commission Presidential Transition Team. She has worked on the adoption of technology by emerging countries, produced independent research on the mobile technology industry, and studied issues such as information technology, telehealth care, and fintech for a variety of firms. She has worked in Europe, India, and the United States.
