FCC Commissioner AJIT PAI has pulled out of an appearance at CES 2018 in LAS VEGAS next week. What's more, Pai was taken to task for continually refusing to answer pointed questions and valid concerns about the consequences that would result from repealingnet neutrality.
The FCC established net neutrality regulations to reclassify broadband as Title II "common carriers" under the Communications Act of 1934.
This marks the first time in five years that he has missed the show and would have been his first appearance as Chairman.
Digital Music News, which has covered the net neutrality debate, cited two unidentified "sources on Capitol Hill" in reporting the reason for the cancellation just days before Pai was scheduled to appear.
Pai was slated to participate in a "candid conversation" on 9th January with FTC Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen, who will still attend.
We've reached out to the FCC for comment on why its chairman was not available. Pai has been widely criticized after his FCC voted to roll back net neutrality legislation that protected consumers.
Finds that the regulatory uncertainty created by utility-style Title II regulation has reduced Internet service provider (ISP) investment in networks, as well as hampered innovation, particularly among small ISPs serving rural consumers. The agency's meeting room was briefly evacuated and searched.
