Remember when the FCC voted 3-2 to repeal Obama-era net neutrality rules and CNN framed it like this?

Remember how Google searches were going to cost $2 a pop? And worst of all, remember NARAL warning us all that a rollback of net neutrality would have a “devastating impact on progressive organizers, activists, and our right to access vital, accurate information” about reproductive health? How could women who couldn’t afford $2 per Google search find a nearby abortion provider?
It might not be a direct result of the net neutrality repeal, but The Daily Caller reports Tuesday that U.S. internet speeds have increased, placing America sixth in terms of broadband speeds.

And also, as predicted by everyone opposed to the end of net neutrality, the world ended… Or something like that. https://t.co/CpVFYRDAtH

Whoa. I thought repealing net neutrality would cause the apocalypse, though? I guess we just have to wait for the Republican tax cuts or America’s exit from the Paris Agreement to do us in. https://t.co/r5fMJJyq4S

Probably because of all the people who died when net neutrality was repealed are no longer sucking up bandwidth https://t.co/S46PqHi6Vl

Was the repeal of net neutrality responsible for the United States moving up in the rankings? Maybe not, but we’re thankful someone is still maintaining the death watch.
UGH! Burger King flame broils net neutrality hot take, and it's a WHOPPER https://t.co/SJzf0KS6OS
