Verizon Challenges FCC's Net Neutrality Rules

Posted 20 January 2011 - 07:50 PM

Verizon Communications Inc. on Thursday filed a legal challenge to new federal regulations that prohibit broadband providers from interfering with Internet traffic flowing over their networks.

In a filing in federal appeals court in the District of Columbia, Verizon argues that the Federal Communications Commission overstepped its authority in adopting the new "network neutrality" rules last month.


Personally, I side with the FCC here if it is enforcing net neutrality. I'm not a huge fan of more government control, but I strongly believe in net neutrality here. On the other hand, these are private Verizon servers and connections. I'd be interested to see the outcome of this.
