Vocal critic of net neutrality, Ajit Pai, set to become new FCC Chairman

http://www.politico.com/blogs/donald...hairman-233905

Trump said to elevate Ajit Pai to FCC chairman

President Donald Trump will tap Ajit Pai as his pick to lead the FCC in the new administration, elevating the sitting GOP commissioner to the top spot overseeing the nation's communications industry, according to two industry sources familiar with decision.

The announcement could come as soon as this afternoon, the sources said. Pai, a Barack Obama nominee who has served as the senior FCC Republican for more than three years, could take the new role immediately and wouldn't require approval by the Senate because he was already confirmed to serve at the agency.

A spokesman for Pai declined to comment and the Trump transition team did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
By contrast, Pai is already a familiar name in tech and telecom policy debates. He’s a fierce and vocal critic of many regulations passed by the commission's Democratic majority, including the 2015 net neutrality rules that require internet service providers to treat all web traffic equally and are opposed by the major broadband companies. As chairman, Pai will be able to start the process of undoing the net neutrality order and pursuing other deregulatory efforts.
Pai and fellow GOP Commissioner Mike O’Rielly, for example, said last month that they will “seek to revisit” the net neutrality rules “as soon as possible,” and Pai said in a December speech he believes 2017 is the best opportunity in the last decade to advance conservative principles. In September, he outlined a “Digital Empowerment Agenda” — a four-point plan he says will help spur investment in internet networks and close the digital divide between rich and poor. The approach seeks to expand access to mobile broadband and reduce regulatory barriers to broadband deployment.
Here's excerpts from his speech last month.

Pai is the commission's senior Republican and could end up being the FCC chairman, at least on an interim basis until Trump chooses a long-term chair.

"I’m optimistic that last month’s election will prove to be an inflection point—and that during the Trump Administration, we will shift from playing defense at the FCC to going on offense," Pai said in a speech yesterday before the Free State Foundation in Washington, DC, said. The commission "need[s] to remove outdated and unnecessary regulations... We need to fire up the weed whacker and remove those rules that are holding back investment, innovation, and job creation," he also said.

Pai has consistently opposed consumer protection rules that the FCC's current Democratic majority imposed on ISPs, including the net neutrality order that forbids blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization.

"On the day that the Title II [net neutrality] Order was adopted, I said that 'I don’t know whether this plan will be vacated by a court, reversed by Congress, or overturned by a future Commission. But I do believe that its days are numbered,'" Pai said. "Today, I am more confident than ever that this prediction will come true. And I’m hopeful that beginning next year, our general regulatory approach will be a more sober one that is guided by evidence, sound economic analysis, and a good dose of humility."

The FCC imposed its net neutrality rules by reclassifying ISPs as common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act. Pai said that "there was no evidence of systemic failure in the Internet marketplace," though he did not mention that the FCC's data shows that many parts of the US have little or no competition for high-speed broadband. Pai called the Title II reclassification "public-utility regulation," saying it "was a solution that wouldn’t work for a problem that didn’t exist." But Pai's opposition to net neutrality rules is not strictly tied to Title II: he also voted against a weaker version of net neutrality in 2014, months before the commission decided to use Title II in order to impose stronger rules that would be upheld in court.

Once Trump is president and Republicans take the FCC's majority, the commission could start the process of overturning the rules or simply decline to enforce them vigorously. Republicans in Congress could also overturn the rules or replace them with weaker ones without fear of a presidential veto.

This is great news. People don't understand net neutrality enough to understand how it kills innovation.

Excellent news! Can't wait for companies squeeze every possible quarter they can from people to preserve a dinosaur subscription service.

lol wut. Ok, so how does creating a tier based internet pay wall that feeds already wildely despised cable companies feed innovation?

The proof better be good. Because we ALREADY have proof that net neutrality has aided in innovation.

As a small business owner, im not in the least bit interested in paying Cox Communications anymore than we already do. Their Business internet and phone services are already highway robbery.

I shared this story in the lounge a few months ago regarding Cox Communications. Wish i could find the thread so i could copy and paste.

Essentially, we pay Cox about $60 a month for a business account Internet. In return we get a whopping 5MB Download Speed.

FIVE

FIVE ****ING MEGA BITES

To compare, i pay about $50-$60 at home for internet through Cox with 128MBPS download speed.

128

ONE HUNDRED TWENTY EIGHT.

I asked my Rep why i pay $60 for a business account that offers 5mbps, and $60 at home for an account that offer 128bps. WTF is the difference?

"Well, a business account also gives you a free static IP"

me: "Ok, how much is a static IP?"

Cox Rep: "$5.00"

Me: "....."

But go ahead, explain to me how giving ISP's the ability to **** me even harder is a good thing for us all.

I don't see my position as anti-consumer at all. But then, I pretty well reject the scare propaganda that has been fed to people like you.

Conspiracy bit? I'm not the one inventing tiered scare scenarios to nationalize a private service. I've yet to hear a good argument for why net neutrality makes sense. That's what you don't seem to understand: I'm not the one with the burden of proof here.
