US White House supports FCC’s plan to review net neutrality rules

The US White House has officially expressed its support for the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) plans to roll back the net neutrality rules the Commission adopted in 2015. In a press briefing, White House’s Principal Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders stated that the administration supports ‘the FCC chair’s efforts to review and consider rolling back these rules, and believes that the best way to get fair rules for everyone is for Congress to take action and create regulatory and economic certainty’. Sanders also mentioned that the previous US administration took a wrong step ‘by imposing rules on ISPs through the FCC’s Title II rulemaking power’.
