Carrier alliance sues to stop net neutrality rules

Net neutrality protest

That didn’t take long. The FCC’s tougher net neutrality rules have only just been published in the federal register, and the lawsuits are already pouring in. The US Telecom Association has filed a suit claiming that the utility-style regulation of internet access is an “arbitrary and capricious” violation of US law. As you’d expect, the carriers still say they embrace net neutrality — they just want the previous “light-touch” enforcement that has supposedly worked so far. We’re sure that Netflix and other challengers would beg to differ, but that’s now a matter for the courts to decide.
