2017/05/24 – FCC Begins Rolling Back Obama’s Net Neutrality Rule – PJ Media
The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday began scrapping the Obama administration’s net neutrality rule with a pivotal 2-1 party line vote.
Adopted in 2015, the FCC’s net neutrality rule bars internet service providers from throttling website data traffic for financial gain. The rule was approved through the 2015 Open Internet Order, which reclassified ISPs from information services to public utilities. Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has proposed undoing the Open Internet Order and returning authority to the Federal Trade Commission, which regulated the internet prior to 2015.
Trump was voted in for actions like these.
