ISP disclosures about data caps and fees eliminated by net neutrality repeal

ISP disclosures about data caps and fees eliminated by net neutrality repeal

The 2010 requirement had ISPs disclose pricing, including "monthly prices, usage-based fees, and fees for early termination or additional network services."

In addition to price and data cap disclosures, the 2010 and 2015 transparency rules also required ISPs to tell customers about network performance and how they manage their networks.

The enhanced disclosures including the packet loss and geographic requirements are being dropped as well, with Pai arguing that consumers generally don't understand the network performance statistics:

The new version of the transparency rules is influenced by Pai's proposed repeal of bans on blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization.

In addition to blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization, ISPs will have to disclose prioritization of their own content, congestion management practices, and limitations imposed on specific types of applications or devices.
