At its meeting Thursday, it’s expected the Federal Communications Commission, the FCC, will do away with the concept of net neutrality. That’s the principle that Internet service providers must treat all data on the Internet the same and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or method of communication.  KSFR’s Tom Trowbridge spoke on Tuesday with Senator Martin Heinrich about the anticipated move.

On Wednesday’s (December 13, 2017) Wake-Up Call, we’ll hear from Democratic New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich on the issue of net neutrality—a policy that’s threatened by the Federal Communications Commission under the leadership of its chairman, Ajit Pai. Senator Heinrich was among the 39 signatories on a letter to Pai on the matter. Also on the program: the Marketplace morning report. And Jack Loeffler will be on hand for episode seven of his series, “The Lore of the Land”
