FCC moves forward with plan to scrap net neutrality protections

FCC mlans to upset net neutrality regulationsThe Federal Communications Commission has voted to move forward with Chairman Ajit Pai's plan to weaken net neutrality protections by ending "utility-style regulation" of the Internet.

In 2015, the FCC under President Barack Obama supported the Open Internet Order, which reclassified broadband Internet as a telecommunications service instead of an information service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act -- meaning the FCC had the power to regulate the Internet.

Under the contested FCC rules to "protect the open Internet," cable companies are not allowed to charge websites more for faster loading times and no content can be blocked. The rules also apply to data services for mobile devices. A repeal would nix those provisions.
