Today, We May Learn How the FCC Plans to Destroy Net Neutrality

On Tuesday, Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., praised Pai's effort but renewed his call for a bipartisan compromise on net neutrality, saying it was the only way to "create long-term certainty for the Internet ecosystem". The proposal to scrap off the rule will be issued on Tuesday by the chairperson of F.C.C Mr. Ajit Pai. It is expected to pass, with the GOP controlling three of the commission's five seats.

The ACLU has already released a statement opposing the FCC and Chairman Pai's plan and ACLU senior policy analyst Jay Stanley said, "Internet rights are civil rights".

The most immediate effect of the FCC's plan "is that constraints limiting contractual arrangements [between Internet providers and other companies] ... will be lifted for both AT&T and its competitors", said Joshua Wright, a former Republican FTC commissioner. The practice, known as zero-rating, was criticized by the previous FCC as a potential violation of net neutrality principles, but Pai rescinded his predecessor's findings upon taking office. If the repeal is enacted, internet service providers (ISP's), such as AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, would be free to decide which content and which companies could get faster speeds, including their own.

The Internet Association, which represents Google's parent company Alphabet as well as Facebook said the vote will spell the end of net neutrality. Nearly six out of 10 Americans favor keeping the current regulations, while only 16 percent said they wanted to overturn net neutrality, according to a phone survey from Consumer Reports. More than 22 million comments have been filed with the FCC about whether net neutrality should be rolled back.

- FCC is expected to share the full text of its plans tomorrow, just a day before Thanksgiving, hoping that not many eyes will catch the bad news. "Instead, the FCC would simply require internet service providers to be transparent about their practices so that consumers can buy the service plan that's best for them and entrepreneurs and other small businesses can have the technical information they need to innovate", Pai said. They say the regulations can undermine investment in broadband and introduced uncertainty about what were acceptable business practices.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai circulates a draft of a rulemaking to consider retaining, modifying or eliminating the cap that, with the restoration of the UHF discount earlier this year, now enables TV station groups to reach as many as 78% of TV homes. The embattled rules risk "stifling innovation, costing jobs, and casting a pall over the investment needed", said Michael Powell, chairman of the Washington-based trade group. "We believe", Verizon said in a statement to ABC, "that users should be able to access the internet when, where, and how they choose, and our customers will continue to do so".
