Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is expected to announce today a sweeping plan to repeal all net neutrality rules. The rules were adopted in 2015 to keep the internet open and prevent corporate service providers from blocking access to websites, slowing down content or providing paid fast lanes for internet service. The new plan to scrap those rules is expected to be voted on during a December meeting of FCC commissioners.
