FCC Commissioner Throws Shade at Net Neutrality

Feb. 26, 2016, was the first anniversary of the passing of the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Net Neutrality regulations. According to an article on InsideSources, FCC commissioner Ajit Pai predicted “their demise in the courts, Congress or at the agency itself.” Broadband adoption in American households, as well as ISPs’ growth in broadband investment, have both seemingly plateaued.

Pai said, “One year ago today, the FCC decided to join 20th century regulation and the 21st century Internet together in not-so-holy matrimony. … It’s fitting that the traditional one-year anniversary gift is paper—for that’s pretty much all that utility-style regulation has produced over the last 12 months. … For most Americans, the marriage has been a dud.”
