FCC Chairman Will Revisit Net Neutrality Rules

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai says he wants to fix the agency's net neutrality rules. The FCC is set to vote on a proposal this month that will revisit the rules governing net neutrality, once again opening up the issue for debate.

Pai is the Republican appointed in January as chairman by President Donald Trump, and says he supports the principles of an open and free internet but doesn't like the utility-style legal framework the rules were based on. 

Pai served on the FCC as a commissioner when the rules were adopted, opposes the so-called Title II classification under the Communications Act for broadband because he says it's discouraged broadband companies, especially smaller ones, from investing in their networks.
