Ajit Pai, chairman ofÂ Federal Communications Commission, has issued a draft order that seeks to repeal internet regulations the previous Obama administration introduced in 2015.
Pai shared hisÂ draft Restoring Internet Freedom Order with fellow commissioners who plan to take up the matter at FCC’s Open Meeting scheduled for Dec. 14,Â FCCÂ said Tuesday.
The proposal would prevent the federal government from “micromanaging the internet” and direct internetÂ service providers to be transparent about their operations.
ISPs’ transparency will let consumers buy their desired service plan and helpÂ entrepreneurs gain the technical information they need to improve their businesses, the FCC chairman noted.
Pai also seeks to authorize theÂ Federal Trade Commission to regulateÂ ISPs, protect consumers and encourage competition.
FCC will publicly release the draft proposal Wednesday.
