Ajit Pai says you’re going to love the death of net neutrality
The Federal Communications Commission’s repeal of net neutrality rules took effect today. But as net neutrality supporters try to get the rules back in place, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is trying to convince Internet users that they’re going to love the newly deregulated broadband industry.
Pai’s FCC has eliminated rules that prohibited Internet service providers from blocking or throttling lawful Internet traffic. The repeal will also let ISPs charge websites or online services for priority access to consumers.
Pai claimed in a CNET op-ed that the repeal preserves the Internet as “an open platform where you are free to go where you want” and that it “will protect consumers and promote better, faster Internet access and more competition.”
