Net neutrality heads to court

2015-12-04 14:48 by

 

The Net neutrality rules, which the Federal Communications Commission passed ten months ago will be challenged in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit today.

Currently, the legislation relies on regulating broadband Internet service as a common carrier of information, much like telephone networks.  The FCC considers that the rules protect consumers, by preventing Internet service providers from blocking, slowing or charging high prices for access to fast lanes for any piece of Internet traffic.

However, cable and telecom companies do not share this opinion. They think that such regulations will burden broadband providers, ultimately making Internet service slower and more expensive for everyone.

The oposers hope that the court will strike down the regulations. The same court has twice rejected the Federal Communications Commission's Net neutrality rules.
