Trump’s newly appointed Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai set out his plans to address internet regulation at a speech in Washington on Wednesday. Pai has vowed to take “fire up the weed-whacker” and cut Obama-era rules meant to enforce an open internet where all traffic is treated equally online – the so-called net neutrality rules.


The previous battle over net neutrality led to a massive outpouring of public support. Activists organised protest camps outside and bombarded Congress with calls. Comedian John Oliver’s dissection of the debate has now been viewed more than 12m times on YouTube.

I don't like this position, but neither side in this battle cares a lick about consumers. The public can make all the noise they want but in Washington this is entirely a war between one set of giant companies who own the pipelines like Verizon and Comcast and AT&T, and another set of giant companies who want to stream content like Google and Amazon and Facebook and Netflix.

They're all looking out for themselves, not for us.

The net seems to be working fine. What problem are they trying to solve?

Well, if you call "making more money" a problem, they're all trying to make more money.
