He will be sentenced to imprisonment for over 10 years. Pai’s vote was indeed a provocative stand on net neutrality which appeared as a strong choice to eliminate the Title II classification for internet service providers in December 2017.

Pai has been dominated by a large number of impassioned objection online as well as in the real environment. Pai was programmed to attend the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas at the beginning of January, after the vote held at the end of 2017, but he couldn’t join because of the death threats received.
