The FCC may rescue net neutrality by reclassifying ISPs as utilities, but that doesn’t mean all your Internet-related problems are going away. The Guardian points out that even though the FCC wants to make sure that Internet access won’t change so  users will still be able to get the same Internet experience they get today, that doesn’t mean the Commission will also regulate prices. Since not all subscribers will spend the same amount of money on Internet and cable each month, the publication put up an interactive map showing the cost differences between different providers and regions.

The Guardian processed data from more than 1,000 Americans and placed the results on an interactive map as seen at the top of this post. The publication found that average monthly costs for Internet access can go well over $150, as you can see on the map that shows pricing details throughout the U.S.

In case you’re looking to change providers or lower your monthly Internet and cable bill, you should check out the map at the link below to get an idea of what others in your region are paying for similar service.
