Why Commissioner Pai Is 100 Percent Wrong on Net Neutrality

WASHINGTON - In a Tuesday press conference, FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai critiqued the agency's pending Open Internet order, mischaracterizing FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's plan as a scheme to "regulate the Internet."

Last week, Wheeler announced his intention to reclassify broadband access as a "telecommunications service" under Title II of the Communications Act. Using Title II would restore basic protections against blocking and unreasonable discrimination by broadband providers, grounding those protections in the proper part of the law for the first time in more than a decade.
