Federal Communications Commission to reveal plans for scrapping Obama-era net neutrality rules
22 November, 2017, 01:08
The Federal Communications Commission is expected to reveal plans for dismantling Obama-era net neutrality rules on Tuesday, according to a report. A vote on the proposal is set for December 14. "Instead, the FCC would simply require internet service providers to be transparent about their practices so that consumers can buy the service plan that's best for them".
The Internet Association, representing major technology firms including Alphabet and Facebook, said Pai's proposal "represents the end of net neutrality as we know it and defies the will of millions of Americans".
"Businesses large and small will have a clearer path to invest more in our nation's broadband infrastructure under Chairman Pai's leadership", the post continued.

"Without net neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the internet into fast and slow lanes", said the advocacy group Free Press. It ignores the law and the courts, which have repeatedly upheld the 2015 Title II rules.
Nancy Pelosi, the top U.S. House of Representatives Democrat, said the FCC move would hurt consumers and chill competition, saying the agency "has launched an all-out assault on the entrepreneurship, innovation and competition at the heart of the internet". A few months from the time President Trump appointed him, Mr. Pai revealed his intention of scrapping off the rules on claims that they were put in place because of some hypothetic and theoretic harm that was anticipated.
"The removal of antiquated, restrictive regulations will pave the way for broadband network investment, expansion and upgrades", Spalter said in a statement.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai circulates a draft of a rulemaking to consider retaining, modifying or eliminating the cap that, with the restoration of the UHF discount earlier this year, now enables TV station groups to reach as many as 78% of TV homes.
"The open internet uplifts the voices of people of color and racial-justice advocates, activists and dissenters of all stripes, independent content creators and journalists, and entrepreneurs".
