Not to be a downer but...

There are powerful companies in the pro-net neutrality camp, but I still can't imagine that this will work. Killing net neutrality is FCC Chairman Ajit Pai pet issue. It's the reason he was appointed. Is there any plausible scenario that he or the other GOP members of the FCC will back down no matter how much pressure there is?

The only hope I have is that the change will be blocked by the courts on some technicality. Or that the president will impulsively tweet something pro-net neutrality and bring Pai's scheme to a screeching halt. But that's pretty unlikely.
