FCC Chairman Increases Defense to Repeal Net Neutrality

With a federal appeals court preparing to consider the Trump administration’s reversal of Obama-era U.S. net neutrality regulations, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission is ramping up his defense of the decision. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has this month also criticized California’s legislature for approving a state measure to guarantee open internet access and said “bad behavior” on the part of Internet service providers (ISPs) could be prevented by the FCC’s new transparency requirements.
