FCC chief’s visit aims to boost net neutrality repeal

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai visited Springfield as part of a New England tour, which started on Monday and concludes Friday. Pai has been visiting rural areas all over the country to hear their challenges. His priority, he said, is to connect all Americans with high-speed internet.

    If I'd known he'd be in town, I would have picketed him for killing net neutrality. He sort of snuck in, didn't he?

  2. His goal is to connect all Americans with high-speed internet, then slow it down. I guess that's what GREAT means these days.......

  3. Trump is for the little guy. This is a all about MAGA. He has are backs. Net neutrality is bad, or Trump would not have ended it.

    1. A wonderful example of extremely flawed, circular logic.

    2. Agreed. Sounds like the old Tea Party railing against any type of government, only to say do not mess with my medicare. You can't make this stuff up!
