WASHINGTON — The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 on Thursday to repeal Obama-era net neutrality rules meant to stop broadband companies from exercising more control over what people watch and see on the internet.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who put forth the planned repeal and voted in favor of it Thursday, said it “certainly wasn’t heavy-handed government regulation” that made the internet the “greatest free-market innovation in history.”
“Quite simply, we are restoring the light-touch framework that has governed the internet for most of its existence,” he said.
The FCC just voted 3-2 to repeal the agency's 2015 net neutrality rules, as expected. Three Republicans in favor, two Democrats vociferously dissenting.— John Hendel (@JohnHendel) December 14, 2017
