FCC Chair: Net Neutrality Fears Debunked, Yoda & A 5G Future | Ajit Pai | POLITICS | Rubin Report


Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai about his role in leading the FCC. So what exactly is net neutrality? When will 5G networks be available in the USA? Does Yoda really influence his regulatory decisions? Ajit answers these questions and breaks down what the FCC does, and how his trust of markets guides his decision making process. He explains how markets have been proven to be the best course for tech and his bigger concern is that rules are too burdensome and that they stifle innovation and competition. Ajit explains what net neutrality is and why he did away with net neutrality rules that had been in place three years prior to his decision. Ajit discusses why he thinks a lot of the public and media were in hysterics over the impending repeal of net neutrality and what misunderstandings led to this reaction. He also shares some of his favorite net neutrality doomsday predictions. Will it cost $5 per Tweet? Is it the end of the internet? Will armageddon ensue? It’s been over a year since net neutrality was repealed… and nothing much changed. Chairman Pai also explains why 5G networks are going to increase broadband speeds and help bridge the digital divide as well as the FCC’s role in regulating space. He also gives his thoughts on the publisher vs. platform debate, if the government is even capable of regulating Big Tech, and much more.
