The FCC just released a plan to undo its own net neutrality rules

The proposal from the Chairman of the US Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai marks the first step toward undoing a key decision of the Obama era, one that forced Internet providers to behave more like legacy telephone companies. The stricter rules for ISPs had made it illegal to block or slow down websites for consumers.
