WASHINGTON- Internet service providers clashed with Democrats and celebrities like "Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill ahead of a vote on the Trump administration's plan to revoke net neutrality rules barring the blocking or slowing of internet traffic.



The Federal Communications Commission is due to vote on Thursday on chairman Ajit Pai's plan to rescind so-called net neutrality rules championed by Democratic former President Barack Obama that treated internet service providers like public utilities.



Protesters including some members of Congress are expected to rally outside the FCC before the vote. The American Civil Liberties Union and consumer advocacy groups are also opposed to reversing net neutrality rules.
