On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission has taken its first step in dismantling Obama-era net neutrality regulations classifying internet service providers as a utility. The decision was made in a 2-1 vote, with FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and Commissioner Michael O'Rielly approving plans to remove Title II regulations from ISPs. The FCC's vote comes two years after 2015's Open Internet order classified ISPs as common carriers. Pai said that the deregulation will return the internet to a "Clinton-era light-touch framework that has proven to be successful."
