The Republican-led Federal Communications Commission will vote to repeal its net neutrality rules on Thursday.
Some Republican members of Congress are asking the FCC chairman to delay the vote.
A recent poll found three out of four Republican voters want to keep the net neutrality rules.
The Republican-led Federal Communications Commission is slated to repeal its net-neutrality rules on Thursday, but many members of the party aren't on board with the move.
With a recent poll indicating that three-fourths of Republican voters oppose the repeal effort, members of the party's congressional contingent have started to speak out against it.
In an open letter sent Tuesday, for example, Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado asked FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to delay the planned vote. Coffman, a Republican, posted the letter to Twitter:
