<span class="articleLocation”>The new U.S. Federal Communications Commission
chief will move to block broadband privacy rules, approved by
the Obama administration, that subject broadband providers to
stricter scrutiny than websites, a spokesman said on Friday, in
a victory for internet providers like AT&T Inc, Comcast
Corp and Verizon Communications Corp.

The spokesman for FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said Pai believes
all companies in the “online space should be subject to the same
rules, and the federal government should not favor one set of
companies over another.”

Pai plans by March 2 to delay the implementation of the
rules which subject companies to stricter oversight than
websites under Federal Trade Commission rules, the spokesman
said.
