Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai listens to a question from a reporter following a vote by the FCC panel to end net neutrality, Dec. 14, 2017, in Washington, D.C.

Pai says the repeal aims to replace “heavy-handed” rules with a “light-touch” approach to Internet regulation. (Jacquelyn Martin/Associated Press file photo)
