Controversial net neutrality rules designed by the Federal Communications Commission to prevent internet providers from imposing higher fees on subscribers that stream video or play online games will go into effect on Nov. 20.

Commission members voted along strict party lines, with the three Democratic members endorsing the guidelines and two Republican commissioners dissenting.
