FCC chairman Ajit Pai has briefed telecom trade associations on his plans to scale back net neutrality rules. Pai’s plans will apparently maintain the basic concept of net neutrality, but will move the enforcement of the rules back to the Federal Trade Commission, rather than the FCC. The new rules would supposedly see telecom companies voluntarily pledging to follow the principles of net neutrality, providing equal access to all traffic, with offenders receiving some form of punishment for unfair practices from the FTC.
