The Federal Communications Commission voted to delay the repeal of its net neutrality rules until the fall.
The FCC’s vote was hailed by net neutrality supporters as a victory for the consumer.
But in fact, the repeal could delay the net neutrality repeal by a year or more.
If the repeal passes, consumers could see their bills skyrocket.
In addition, the FCC will not have to update its net-neutrality rules until 2018.
The agency could end up canceling some or all of the rules.
A recent Consumer Reports study found that more than half of consumers have been hit with bills for the cost of the repeal.
Consumer advocates are urging Congress to pass a bill to end the repeal by September.
Consumers who had bills already due by the end of the year are being urged to contact their local state and local officials and lawmakers to urge them to stop the repeal and help consumers pay.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the National Association of Realtors have teamed up to help consumers make their voices heard.
The consumer watchdog group has issued an official warning that consumers should avoid the repeal until the repeal is repealed.
The warning comes just a few days after the FCC released its draft net neutrality rule.
The draft rule proposes to make it easier for Internet service providers to charge users more for access to certain content and to block or throttle websites that offer content that violates the net-neutrality rules.
The repeal of net neutrality will likely result in more complaints to the FCC from consumers, the Consumer Financial Protect Bureau said in a press release.
