In a visit to New Jersey, FCC chairman Ajit Pai called Democrats’ net neutrality efforts a “political strategy.”
John Oliver is robocalling FCC commissioners like Ajit Pai. He argues that the rules are ineffective at stopping them.
“Hi FCC, this is John from customer service,” Oliver’s recorded voice says on the call. “Congratulations, you’ve just won a chance to lower robocalls in America today… robocalls are incredibly annoying, and the person who can stop them is you! Talk to you again in 90 minutes—here’s some bagpipe music.”

AT&T is so excited for the rollout of 5G that it’s updating smartphones a bit early, with a misleading 5G icon.
AT&T has updated three smartphones from Samsung and LG to make them show 5G connectivity logos, even though none of them are capable of connecting to 5G networks…That “E” in the “5G” logo is supposed to tip you off that this isn’t real 5G — just some marketing nonsense. But there’s no way of knowing that just from looking at the logo.
As it turns out, the government didn’t create or ratify 5G. Neither the FCC nor FTC are regulating what the term means, so technically AT&T is still within the law by doing this. Doesn’t make it right, but it shows how absurd the 5G situation is.

FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s dream of an internet unshackled from net neutrality regulations is coming true because as of now the Open Internet Order is no longer in effect, opening the door for internet service providers to control access to online content in the United States as they see fit.
It must still be voted on in the House of Representatives, however, and signed into law by President Trump, meaning it’s not likely to go further.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s dream to kill net neutrality could come to an end because the U.S. Senate is forcing a vote to restore the protections.
Is it Ajit Pai’s fault she’s an alleged crook? No, but it surely reinforces Bryan Chaffin’s extremely negative perceptions that someone brought on to help his radical deregulatory agenda is being accused of fraud.
These photos are part of an FCC filing for an “Apple Inc. Smartphone -E3161A,” and clearly show a gold-colored device where no such device currently exists.

In a feat of willful ignorance or outright deceit, Mr. Pai believes that free market competition can keep the Internet open when there is no competition.
Internet-inventor Tim Berners-Lee has written an editorial for USA Today asking Americans to help save the Internet from an irresponsible vote on Net Neutrality expected from the FCC.
