Market force has found that orders for wireless routers surged to more than 1.6 billion, or more than three times the amount it had expected.

The information technology industry was particularly busy on Wednesday, as orders surged by more than 7 percent for routers and other devices.

The numbers came a day after the Federal Communications Commission voted to overturn net neutrality rules.

The rules, which had been passed by Congress in 2015, require internet service providers to treat all traffic equally, and allow providers to charge customers for faster speeds.

On Wednesday, the FCC ruled that the rules would remain in place as long as carriers did not discriminate against certain kinds of traffic.
