The Federal Communications Commission is scheduled to vote soon on a plan to dismantle regulations that ensure equal access to the internet, a concept known as “net neutrality.” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has said he supports an “open internet” and is quoted in Fortune magazine as believing that less regulation is more beneficial to market growth and that broadband shouldn't be regulated like a utility. Proponents of the 2015 regulations that bar internet providers from discriminating how broadband is used fear that dismantling those regulations would encourage telecom companies to charge higher fees for access to certain content and faster service — in effect, creating a “fast lane” and “slow lane” for the internet.
Should the FCC keep net neutrality rules that prevent internet providers from charging customers higher fees for access to certain content or to get faster service?
