Net Neutrality’s expiration date set.

The FCC has set the official date when the “Restoring Internet Freedom Order”—a.k.a. the revocation of Net Neutrality—will take effect. That dark day will be June 11—30 days after its publication in the Federal Register. Commenting on the issue, Chairman Pai issued a statement saying, “I strongly support a free and open Internet. And that’s exactly what we had for decades, starting in the Clinton Administration. The Internet wasn’t broken in 2015, when the prior FCC buckled to political pressure and imposed heavy-handed Title II rules on the Internet economy. It doesn’t make sense to apply outdated rules from 1934 to the Internet, but that’s exactly what the prior Administration did. Now, on June 11, these unnecessary and harmful Internet regulations will be repealed and the bipartisan, light-touch approach that served the online world well for nearly 20 years will be restored.”
