What's the Rush to End Net Neutrality?

The Federal Communications Commission will vote to repeal its 2015 network neutrality rules during its December 14 meeting. But some FCC Commissioners, lawmakers, and public interest groups are urging FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to delay the vote on his proposal. Despite calls for a vote delay, Chairman Pai appears determined to return "to the legal framework for Internet regulation that was in place” in 2014 (even if this plan breaks with 50 years of history).  And although Chairman Pai claims he is restoring the authority of the FTC “to police the practices of Internet service providers”, did the FTC ever act on one of these practices before 2015?  December 14 is the day of the vote, but there’s much more news to come before, during, and after the FCC’s meeting.
