Ajit Pai: Repealing Net Neutrality Returns FCC to ‘Rational’ Approach Over Internet

Chairman Ajit Pai of the Federal Communications Commission

The Federal Communications Commission’s Ajit Pai is returning federal regulation of the internet to a “much more rational” approach by repealing net neutrality, the chairman said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon.

Pai says he holds the “very radical” position once held by former Democratic president Bill Clinton: a hands-off approach to allow the internet to continue to flourish free from burdensome government rules.
