FCC has released the text of its order to take away net neutrality protections

A few weeks ago, the FCC voted to remove Title II protections for net neutrality, and now it has released the final text of its “Restoring Internet Freedom Order.” This full text includes reasons as to why FCC chairman Ajit Pai and two other commissioners believed that the previous existing rules were harmful and had to be removed. The text also include dissenting opinions from commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Jessica Rosenworcel.

If you’ve been keeping up with the debate, you’ll notice the different point of views in the 539-page document. The release of the documents now sets the stage for the next step in the process: hearings, lawsuits, attempts by states and cities to establish their own net neutrality rules and regulations. This is where Congress can attempt to legislate rules in one way or another and finally lay rest to one of the hottest debates in modern times.

Because of what FCC chairman Ajit Pai did with net neutrality protections, he won’t be speaking at CES next week. He’s reportedly received death threats, so he will not be taking part in CES 2018. If you’d like to know why he pushed so hard even through all the opinions and arguments against removing the protections, you can only do so through the text because you will not hear it from Pai any time soon.
