Donald Trump is elevating FCC member Ajit Pai to succeed Thomas Wheeler as the new chairman of the regulatory agency. While Wheeler helped create what’s known as “Net Neutrality” Pai says he wants to dismantle it. Pai has also opposed other FCC actions including privacy protections. Net Neutrality rules prevent Internet Service Providers from picking favorites among content providers and from throttling down data rates. A dismantling of those rules could boost the prospects for major players who can afford to pay for carriage, but kill off thousands of startup Internet enterprises.
