"Rules developed to tame a 1930s monopoly were imported into the 21st century to regulate the Internet", he argued. This reversal wasn't necessary to solve any problem; we were not living in a digital dystopia. It had been suggested Trump would use the looming AT&T and Time Warner merger to gain leverage but Pai plans no review.
"We are confident in the decades-long, cross-party consensus on light-touch internet regulation. and we are on track to returning to that successful approach", he said, offering a torch-passing analogy between the previous chair and himself.
Ansip added: "We want to avoid global fragmentation, where people's connections turn patchy when they travel overseas".
His ascendancy to the chairmanship comes at a time when debate rages on about cellular infrastructure expansion, and whether Wheeler's decision to enforce net neutrality two years ago was a good idea. Those rules prohibited internet service providers from discriminating against traffic to certain websites.
"That is the regulatory hook for FCC review", Pai told the Wall Street Journal at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Under the rules, ISPs can't set policies that set up the internet in a tiered way. The scrapping of a decision by FCC under the previous administration to investigate the zero-rated products had led to major announcements on unlimited data plans by the major U.S. carriers in the last few weeks, he said.
"Our new approach injected tremendous uncertainty into the broadband market", Pai said.
Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T - the four largest wireless providers in the USA - all launched new unlimited data plans in recent weeks in an apparent attempt to capitalize on the change.
In addition to outlining potential benefits for consumers, AT&T and Time Warner also claimed that their merger won't affect competition because the companies "do not compete with each other in any significant respect".

Pai referred to the net neutrality regulations implemented by the Obama administration as "1930's-style regulation".
Newly minted Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai just granted the telecom industry its wish: he has blocked new requirements that Internet service providers (ISPs) like Comcast apply common sense security practices to protect your private data.
Pai, however, will likely face opposition to any effort to repeal or weaken the rules, as Democrats on Capitol Hill already have held a press conference to warn of such a move and public interest groups have been mobilizing for a new battle for the open internet.
Although he did not outline specific plans for what he will do with the current Open Internet Order, Pai went to some lengths to explain what he feels is the correct approach to the future of both wired and wireless networks: get out of the companies' way. The actions he's taken since becoming chairman last month show he's anything but. "Today's stay will also ensure that ISPs and other telecommunications carriers do not incur substantial and unnecessary compliance costs while the Commission considers modifications to the rule".
