Here's What You Need to Know About the Upcoming Battle for Net Neutrality

Another Obama era regulatory regime bites the dust

Citing people familiar with the plans, Politico reports that the FCC is going to repeal the rules that prevent internet service providers from blocking or slowing down web traffic.

The net neutrality regulations that the Federal Communications Commission adopted during the Obama era appear to be headed to the chopping block. "The regulations passed in 2015 bar broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. from interfering with web traffic sent by Google, Facebook Inc. and others". FCC Chairman Ajit Pai "will try to shrink the footprint of the rules", said Daniel Berninger, a telecom engineer who has opposed the regulations.

That means the Vantage will leave benchmark rivals including the Porsche 911 GTS and Jaguar F-Type V8 for dust in a straight line. Aston Martin is pursuing a turnaround plan created to return it to profitability and set up a possible stock market flotation.

There has been no formal comment by the FCC on this as yet. Pai, an appointee of President Donald Trump, is also expected to eliminate the legal foundation allowing for federal oversight of internet service providers, which he says has discouraged broadband companies from investing in their networks.

Supporters of the existing rules, including tech giants like Netflix and left-leaning digital activists, say they are necessary to ensuring the internet remains a level playing field. Killing net neutrality would allow ISPs to slow speeds for rival companies, or even charge extra to allow access to rival media/entertainment outlets ("Choosing sides in the fight over net neutrality", November 17).
