FCC Reaffirms New Net Neutrality Rules

Nice try there, AT&T

WASHINGTON�Nice try there, AT&T.

The FCC has stated that it will not reconsider the part of its net neutrality plan that classifies the Internet as a public utility. The agency �said its classification of fixed and mobile broadband Internet access as a telecommunications service falls well within its statutory authority and is consistent with Supreme Court precedent. Classifying mobile broadband as a telecommunications service means that the FCC can regulate it under the Communications Act of 1934,� according torcrwireless.com.

The new net neutrality rules are scheduled to go in to effect on June 12, assuming no other legal proceedings get in the way.� TheCTIAand AT&T are principle organizations in a wireless industry group that had petitioned the FCC to delay the new rules pending a judicial review. �
