While Net Neutrality laws were repealed on December 14, 2017 in the United States, and took effect on June 11, 2018 (although a U.S. Senate vote to upheld the regulation), California's net neutrality bill has just taken a major victory after the bill, S.B. 822, received a majority of votes in the Senate.

It means that the big companies like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, among others, can't circumvent net neutrality within the state of California, they also can't decide to not count certain services against the data limit in a discriminatory way. For example if company X has their own streaming service, this data usage of this service has to count towards the data limit as well.

One argument the companies brought against Net Neutrality is that it makes it impossible for them to invest in expansion or upgrade of their services. Which is sort of bull. What about the other companies offering the same service?

Although Trump's administration repealed the Net Neutrality bill, the idea of Net Neutrality remains popular in the United States, and the new bill in California could be easily replicated in other States as well.
