FCC Will Vote on Net Neutrality in December

According to an article by Todd Shields in Bloomberg Politics, in December 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) “is planning a vote to kill Obama-era rules demanding fair treatment of web traffic and may decide to vacate the regulations altogether. … The move would reignite a years-long debate that has seen Republicans and broadband providers seeking to eliminate the rules, while Democrats and technology companies support them. The regulations passed in 2015 bar broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. from interfering with web traffic sent by Google, Facebook Inc. and others.”

An unnamed source told Shields that FCC chairman Ajit Pai “may call for vacating the rules except for portions that mandate internet service providers inform customers about their practices—one of the more severe options that would please broadband providers. They argue the FCC’s rules aren’t needed and discourage investment, in part because they subject companies to complex and unpredictable regulations.”
