WASHINGTON - The US Senate confirmed on Monday Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to serve another five-year term on the telecommunications regulatory panel.

Pai won confirmation 52-41 over objections from Democrats, who criticized him for moving to dismantle Obama-era internet access rules and taking other steps to deregulate US telecommunications rules but Republicans praised for taking steps to boost rural internet service.
