INCOMPAS to FCC: Delay Vote, Show Item Edits

INCOMPAS is calling on Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to pull the plug on the Dec. 14 net neutrality rule rollback vote after Politico reported that the FCC's CTO, Eric Burger, had issues with it. INCOMPAS members include Amazon, Google, Twitter and Facebook. According to the story, CTO Eric Burger said allowing ISPs to block certain Web sites, as the rule rollback would allow so long as ISPs disclosed it and the Federal Trade Commission did not conclude it was anticompetitive, was not in the public interest. “The discussion is a normal part of the process with meeting items," said Burger. "After I reviewed the relevant sections, I am satisfied the order addressed my question and we also added clarifying language to make the issue clear. I fully support the item.” INCOMPAS was not assuaged. "INCOMPAS, [which] raised the very same, exact concerns in a letter to the FCC, is asking the FCC to delay the vote and release the redline changes to the Order for the public to see," the group said.
