Cloud major Oracle has voiced support for US communications regulatory agency Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to roll back its net neutrality rules. Oracle wrote a letter to the FCC and played up its “perspective as a Silicon Valley technology company”, hammering the debate over the rules as a “highly political hyperbolic battle”, that is “removed from technical, economic, and consumer reality”, a report in The Hill said on Saturday.

“The stifling open internet regulations and broadband classification that the FCC put in place in 2015 – for just one aspect of the internet ecosystem – threw out both the technological consensus and the certainty needed for jobs and investment,” the letter said.
