Enlarge (credit: Getty Images | designer491) A group of small Internet service providers yesterday urged Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to preserve the FCC’s net neutrality rules and the related classification of ISPs as common carriers. “We have encountered no new additional barriers to investment or deployment as a result of the 2015 decision to reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service and have long supported network neutrality as a core principle for the deployment of networks for the American public to access the Internet,” the ISPs said in a letter to Pai that was organized by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

The fact of the matter is that none… Read More
