The FCC has unveiled its plan to repeal its net neutrality rules

  • FCC Chairman Ajit Pai

In May, the FCC approved Pai's proposal to review the Open Internet order passed under the previous USA government in 2015, which laid down a number of rules for ISPs aimed at ensuring net neutrality.

Ajit Pai, commissioner at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), speaks during an open meeting to vote on internet regulations in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015. Democrats and internet companies said the rules are needed to prevent broadband providers from favoring their business partners' offerings, or their own video and other content.

Chairman Pai had said earlier this year that the 2015 net neutrality rules were a burden to businesses and innovation. Trump, a Republican, expressed his opposition to net neutrality in 2014 before the regulations were even implemented, calling it a "power grab" by Obama.

With a Republican majority on the FCC, passage of the proposed rules is nearly certain.

Net neutrality is the principle that internet providers treat all web traffic equally, and it's pretty much how the internet has worked since its creation. The proposal, which will be up for public view tomorrow, is largely expected to pass with the vote splitting along party lines. The proposal to scrap off the rule will be issued on Tuesday by the chairperson of F.C.C Mr. Ajit Pai.

AT&T, Comcast and Verizon have said that repealing the rules could lead to billions of dollars in additional broadband investment and eliminate the possibility that a future presidential administration could regulate internet pricing. The FCC's new plan, which goes by the dubious name "Restoring Internet Freedom Order", would give ISPs like AT&T and Comcast complete control over what websites and services their users can access, and whether or not users would have to pay higher rates to access certain sites.

Pai's full proposal will be released on 22 November, a day before the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.

Instead, the FCC, under Pai's suggestion, would return to the "light-touch, market-based framework that unleashed the digital revolution and benefited consumers here and around the world", the chairman said in a statement.

"Strong net neutrality protections must be in place to maintain a truly open and free internet", said Peters. The FCC granted initial approval to Pai's plan in May, but had left open many key questions including whether to retain any legal requirements limiting internet providers conduct. Free Press has shown time and again that Title II is the best and only foundation in present law for Net Neutrality rules; it also gives the FCC the authority to enforce other rules related to broadband affordability, privacy and competition. In its latest proposal, the commission is ready to reduce its own powers that ensure that internet providers don't block or interfere with the web traffic.
