Who wins—and who loses—on net neutrality rules

What net neutrality means for companies, consumers

The Federal Communications Commission passed new rules Thursday that reclassified the Internet as a public utility, and there's a clear list of winners and losers.

The new rules allow the FCC to regulate Internet service providers the same way they regulate telecom companies and prevent them from creating "slow and fast lanes" for web traffic.

Allowing internet providers to charge more for faster service would benefit the likes of Time Warner Cable and Comcast, but potentially hurt streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon.com as well as social networks like Facebook and Tumblr.
