>As a result of Thursday's action, "thousands" of small and medium-sized internet service providers (ISPs) around the country are no longer required to give their customers detailed information about broadband prices, speeds and fees, according to the FCC.

This seems regrettable, but what do this have to do with net neutrality? Isn't the point of net neutrality that all consumers of bandwidth should have equal access to the internet, and they should not have to pay more for access to any particular part of it? The article's title seems inaccurate, at no point do they explain what this new lack of transparency actually has to do with net neutrality.
