New Jersey third state with its own net neutrality

CNET- New Jersey has become the latest state to enact its own net neutrality regulations following the Federal Communications Commission's dismantling of the controversial Obama-era regulations.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Monday signed an executive order requiring internet service providers that do business with the state adhere to the principles of net neutrality. That means broadband providers wouldn't be allowed to throttle traffic or create internet "fast lanes."

With the order, New Jersey is joining Montana and New York in making their own net neutrality policy after the FCC voted in December to get rid of the net neutrality regulations, which required all internet traffic to be treated equally.
