That'll have impact on ops, if some of the papers are correct.
Briefly:


https://www.engadget.com/2016/11/09/under-trump-the-future-of-net-neutrality-and-broadband-is-uncert

"Eisenach has made a career out of crusading against industry 
regulation"

"...authored several papers and op-ed pieces that were funded by 
Net Neutrality opponents ..."



http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-fcc-net-neutrality-zero-rating-policy-future-2016-11

"The Economics of Zero Rating." In it, Eisenach defends the concept, 
writing that "broad-based bans or restrictions on zero-rating plans 
are likely to be counterproductive and harm consumer welfare."



Interesting times ahead...
