End to net neutrality: U.S. regulators ditch rules as legal battles loom 15.12.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted along party lines on Thursday to repeal landmark 2015 rules aimed at ensuring a free and open internet, setting up a court fight over a move that could recast the digital landscape. The approval of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's proposal in a 3-2 vote marked a victory for internet service providers such as AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp and Verizon Communications Inc and hands them power over what content consumers can access. It also is the biggest win for Pai in his sweeping effort to undo many telecommunications regulations since taking over at the agency in January. Democrats, Hollywood and companies such as Google parent Alphabet Inc and Facebook Inc had urged Pai, a Republican appointed by U.S. President Donald Trump, to keep the Obama-era rules barring service providers from blocking, slowing access to or charging more for certain content. The new rules give internet service providers sweeping powers to change how consumers access the internet but must have new ...

 Billionaire Mukesh Ambani today hit back at Bharti's Sunil Mittal for blaming his telecom venture Jio for the industry's losses, saying businesses must stop looking at regulators and governments to guarantee their profits. Calling Mittal a "friend", he said profits and losses are risks businesses take and it is more important to find out if the country and the consumers gained after Jio. Addressing the HT Leadership Summit here, he said that after the entry of Jio, India has become the world's No.1 mobile broadband market, consuming more data than users in the US and China. "For all of us in the industry, I think profits and losses are risks that we take. I don't think we can rely on governments and regulators to guarantee our profits or losses," Ambani maintained. This was in response to a query on Mittal's reported comments -- who runs India's biggest telecom firm Bharti Airtel -- that all telecom companies had put together written down USD 40-50 billion of investments due to Jio's entry.
