FCC votes to roll back Obama-era 'net neutrality' regulations
The Federal Communications Commission voted on Thursday to roll back internet rules known as net neutrality. The commission's three Republicans voted to end the rules, while its two Democrats voted against it. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai charges that the Obama-era regulations -- designed to prevent internet service providers from favoring certain sites or services - are "heavy handed." FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, a Democrat, said the move was a "consumer-harming, corporate-enabling, destroying-internet-freedom order." Opponents of the reversal say it will allow providers to give preferential treatment to certain sites at a price. Legal challenges are expected.
