FCC begins repeal of Obama-era “Net Neutrality” power grab

Source: Los Angeles Times

“Federal regulators on Thursday took the first formal step toward repealing tough net neutrality rules enacted two years ago that imposed strict oversight of Internet service providers [on the pretext of ensuring] the unfettered flow of online content. … With net neutrality supporters, including Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), protesting outside the agency’s building, the Republican-controlled FCC voted 2-1 along party lines to start a formal, months-long process of dismantling the rules put in place in 2015. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said the goal was ‘to return to the light-touch regulatory framework’ that had allowed the Internet to flourish.” ()5/18/17)
