On May 23, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission released a Notice of
Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) proposing the reversal of the agency's 2015 Title
II Order which subjected Internet service providers (ISPs) to regulation as
telecommunications services pursuant to Title II of the Communications Act of
1934, as amended.

In a 2-1 vote along partisan lines, the Commission proposed rolling back the
net neutrality rules based largely on the grounds that the Title II regulatory
framework for ISPs has dramatically decreased broadband infrastructure
