The FCC’s plan to undo net neutrality is about to be revealed
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to reverse Title II changes could be presented later today.
Republican chairman Pai is expected to either unveil a formal plan on Wednesday while Americans are distracted by holiday preparations, or potentially on Friday, while Americans are busy shopping for Black Friday bargains.
Survey after survey (including those conducted by the cable industry itself) have found net neutrality has broad, bipartisan support. And yet Ajit Pai and his GOP majority in the FCC intend to dismantle the rules that keep the Internet a level playing field. Reports indicate that Pai will issue a "full repeal," reversing a decision to treat broadband as a utility and removing protections preventing ISPs from blocking, slowing down or charging extra to deliver different kinds of content, while also reassigning regulation of any anticompetitive behavior to the FTC.
