This Week in Gambling: Donald Trump leaves as Net Neutrality returns

14 January 2021

Our gambling news this week focuses on the return of Net Neutrality rules, and that means the exit of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. The return of Net Neutrality will ensure a better internet for online casinos, poker, and sports betting. Also, as another state prepares to launch sports betting, we look at how large the industry could grow over the next few years.

Now, with the presidency of Donald Trump coming to an end, expectations are that Net Neutrality will return with the appointment of a new Chairman of the FCC. The current Chairman, Ajit Pai (a Trump appointee), has announced that he is leaving office by 20 January, leaving a legacy of higher internet prices. Pai helped destroy Net Neutrality. ISP costs to users have gone up since that time while performance has remained stagnant.

Net Neutrality is the principle that all traffic on the internet must be treated equally. It requires internet service providers to prohibit slowing or blocking access to websites, and it prohibits companies that control internet access from favoring their own services and content over a competitor’s content or services. It also prohibits broadband companies from offering “fast lanes”. The new Chairman of the FCC is expected to restore Net Neutrality protections.
