Net Neutrality Repeal

Also while I was away, the FCC scrapped the net neutrality rules, with FCC chairman Ajit Pai gleefully pushing this through over vociferous objection from Democratic commissioners. Niley Patel sees political problems ahead on this for Republicans. Cecilia Kang considers what's next, as does the ACLU's Jay Stanley. Tim Wu, who coined the phrase net neutrality, details the history behind the net neutrality rules. Some states are now gearing up to sue, and Congress could also get involved. Michael J. Socolow puts this decision in historical context and says Ajit Pai is ignoring the potential for FCC regulation to ensure fair competition. Activists are concerned that the net neutrality repeal will further marginalize LGBT voices.
