“Fred Campbell, a former Republican FCC aide and the current director of the free-market think tank Tech Knowledge, said the primary argument for keeping the net neutrality rules is because internet service providers such as Comcast Corp. and AT&T Inc. have an economic incentive to act as gatekeepers on the web.
