The appointment of Eisenach and Jami son suggests Trump plans to roll back net objectivity protections. The move will likely be measured a win by Internet providers and a hurdle for streaming services like HBO and Netflix.
Trump had already hired Eisenach in October as an aide to help craft his telecoms policies and plans for the FCC. Monday’s publication formalises Eisenach’s role, and names him and Jami son to the “landing team” that will work directly with the current FCC management on the transition.
Under the Obama government, the FCC has advanced protections for net objectivity. The FCC’s 2015 Open Internet Order ensured that Internet providers can’t separate between special types of content. That means that your Internet service can’t make you pay extra to get a “fast lane” to watch Netflix and transfer others to probably unusable “slow lanes.”
