Although the FCC's two Democrats said they will oppose the proposal, the repeal is likely to prevail as Republicans dominate 3-2.

After becoming Chairman, Pai had said he meant to "fire up the weed whacker and remove those rules that are holding back investment, innovation, and job creation" in telecommunications.

Dillion said he's also heard healthcare could be something internet service providers decide to favor over other markets. A formal vote on the plan is set for December 14th.

On the positive side, Pai's plan would require Internet service providers to be transparent about where their allegiances lie.

"It's a signature accomplishment for Pai's chairmanship", said Fred Campbell, director of the conservative think tank Tech Knowledge.

"One obvious problem with anything out of the FCC on what has become such a hyperpartisan topic is that it can so easily be reversed by the next (Democratic) FCC", he added.

In May, dozens of victims wrote a letter to the FCC stating that their information was stolen and they were concerned that the agency wasn't doing anything to address the issue because the fake comments supported the agency's latest rules on net neutrality. "Tragically, this decision is only for the benefit of the large monopoly services that deliver the Internet to the consumer".

Technology giants are expecting to lobby furiously against the FCC's plan, setting up a heavyweight fight between Silicon Valley giants and telecommunications conglomerates - two of the most well-heeled industries in the country.

"The FCC's net neutrality rules are working well for consumers, and we're disappointed in the proposal released today", Google said in a statement.

"What you see in a number of different sectors is a desire for scale", said Levin. Others have posited that the repeal of net neutrality could lead to more subscription services and certain websites packaged together as deals, much like how cable companies package certain channels.

The freedom that comes with these rules will be the freedom of companies to charge more or less what they want for internet services, which turns out not to be ideal for USA consumers who have few if any choices among internet service providers.

The concept ensures internet service providers treat all online content and apps equally. Currently, over 62 million do not have access to fast internet, mostly in urban centers and rural areas.

Other companies, such as Verizon, have exempted their own apps from mobile data limits in a bid to drive user engagement.

Concerns about Pai's deregulatory agenda grew as the FCC unveiled significant policy proposals in the final days before the Thanksgiving holiday. Maureen Ohlhausen, the acting chairman of the FTC, has said that the agency's expertise in data security and privacy issues will make it a powerful defender of USA consumers. Some regulatory authority on consumer protection would shift to the Federal Trade Commission.
