President Trump's new FCC chief, Ajit Pai, wants to repeal net neutrality which more or less creates a fair playing field on the internet.

Media reports say he will announce a plan this week and will seek a vote in December.

The net neutrality rules were created in 2015 under the Obama administration.

They prevent broadband providers from slowing down, blocking or charging more for delivery of particular internet content.

Without net neutrality, internet providers could speed up their own shows they want you to watch. Or slow down shows from competitors like Netflix, Google or Amazon.
