US operators file new appeal against net neutrality rules

Friday 29 July 2016 | 17:28 CET | News
Telecom operators in the US are continuing their fight against the Federal Communications Commission's Open Internet Order, setting rules on net neutrality. On 27 July, the DC Circuit of the US Court of Appeals rejected their petition for a review of the order, saying the FCC acted with the appropriate authority in its decision to reclassify broadband as a telecom service and subject it to stricter regulations. In response, the operators have filed for an en banc rehearing of the court's decision, the FCC said.
