This week, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that he stands by the repeal of net neutrality rules when the commission adopted the Restoring Internet Freedom Order in 2017.
Pai noted that with the order,  the FCC “overturned the previous Administration’s decision to heavily regulate the Internet like a slow-moving utility under rules developed in the 1930s and restored the longstanding, bipartisan, market-based approach,” as reported by LawStreetMedia. The FCC Chairman stated that at the time Americans were told that “if we don’t save net neutrality, you’ll get the internet one word at a time” or that you would have to pay for sites and searches, such as paying $2 per Google search.
