The chair of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has proposed a return to net neutrality rules that were abandoned during the Trump administration, according to an announcement released on Tuesday.

Net neutrality rules require internet service providers to allow access to all websites and content providers at the same rates and speeds, regardless of their size or content. After an effort led by Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai reversed them in 2018, the current Democratic chair, Jessica Rosenworcel, announced on Tuesday that the commission would consider a proposal to reinstate the rules, with a vote being scheduled on Oct. 19, according to an announcement and fact sheet posted on its website.
