Both of Maine's senators sent a last-minute letter for Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai urging him to cancel Thursday's vote on net neutrality.

"Repealing the FCC's net neutrality rules will undermine long-standing protections that have ensured the open internet as a powerful and transformative platform of innovation and economic opportunity," Sens. Susan Collins, Republican, and Angus King, Jr., independent, wrote in their letter.

"We respectfully ask that the commission cancel the vote on the proposed order as scheduled and give Congress and the FCC the time to hold public hearings in 2018."

The FCC did not cancel its monthly meeting, or change its plans to discuss ending net neutrality.
