Net Neutrality Nixed:Impact on Real Estate

A Facebook Live Event

Event date: 12/7/2017 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM Add to Calendar

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to strike down net neutrality, the system of rules that tries to create an even playing field on the internet for websites and users. NAR supports net neutrality and opposes the FCC plan to end it in mid-December. NAR analyst Melanie Wyne explains and answers questions on how net neutrality works and what the real estate industry can expect to happen should it be terminated. Impacts are expected to be felt by MLSes, listing sites, associations, brokerages, sales associates, and consumers as internet service providers (ISPs) create fast and slow lanes on the Internet and enter into agreements with some content providers.
