"That is not the open internet we know today and rely on to consume and create. We still don't and won't block, throttle or discriminate against lawful content".
Perhaps the repeal won't change the direction of the internet.
Other states, including New York, Vermont, and Montana, are using executive orders and various other means of reinstating net neutrality, but at the moment, Washington is the only state to pass a bill protecting it. OR passed similiar legislation, but it won't go into effect until next year, as Motherboard reports.
