WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will vote to reinstate landmark net neutrality rules and assume new regulatory oversight of broadband internet that was rescinded under former President Donald Trump, the agency's chair said.

The FCC told advocates on Tuesday of the plan to vote on the final rule at its April 25 meeting.

The commission voted 3-2 in October on the proposal to reinstate open internet rules adopted in 2015 and re-establish the commission's authority over broadband internet.

FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel confirmed the planned commission vote in an interview with Reuters.

That just as soon as there’s another Repuke administration, that FCC chair will simply reverse this one. And it will keep going back and forth…

The only fix for Net Neutrality is legislation.
