FCC votes to start net neutrality rollback

Nowhere in the article was there any mention that the actions of the FCC under Pai were a response to last-minute regulatory changes under the Obama administration, which had to reach back to laws and regulations meant for the 1930s telephone industry for their authority.

Those who support Pai's plan, including Republicans and broadband providers, argue the 2015 regulation is an FCC regulatory overreach that has prevented investment and innovation in broadband infrastructure and has harmed customers.

FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, who was the lone vote against the proposal, issued a dissenting statement, which said, "If you unequivocally trust that your broadband provider will always put the public interest over their self-interest or the interest of their stockholders, then the Destroying Internet Freedom NPRM is for you". First, Gattuso said, it "declared all providers of broadband service to be common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, which allows extensive regulation of "telecommunications services".

The chief minister also stated that the tax reform would result in benefits to business and industries and consumers as well. These items at present attract 22-24 per cent tax incidence through a combination of central and state government levies.

The vote Thursday will commence a public comment period, which will allow Americans to weigh in on the decision to undo the 2015 Open Internet Order rules. The rules also apply to data services for mobile devices. Without net neutrality, they argue, internet providers could slow access to web content and make it more hard to transfer large amounts of data.

Francis Ford Coppola, director of classic films such as "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now", has sent a letter to the top US telecommunications regulator to urge support for "net neutrality", which prevents internet companies from blocking, throttling or giving "fast lanes" to particular websites. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) has said to expect that total to be minuscule compared with this time around, and Schatz was clearly looking for the flood as well. The 2015 decision regulated internet providers more heavily, using some of the same rules the agency applied to phone companies.
