FCC urged to delay net neutrality vote in public interest

Tuesday 5 December 2017 | 08:27 CET | News
Public interest and consumer groups from all over the US, as well as local government agencies including New York City, have called on Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to delay the 14 December vote on rolling back net neutrality rules pending a court decision. The letter backed by Washington DC-based public interest group Public Knowledge was sent after the FCC released Pai's proposal for net neutrality, confirming he plans to overturn much of the previous Open Internet order, preventing providers from charging customers higher fees for high-quality video streaming.
