Oracle Support for FCC’s Move to Rollback Net Neutrality

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.
