New Net Neutrality Rules Face First Challenges

After months of deliberation, the FCC announced that ISPs would be regulated as common carriers -- and ISPs are challenging the new rules before they even take effect.

The FCC’s new Net Neutrality regulations have been contentious since the agency first mentioned common carrier. Now the first legal challenges are being presented before the law even goes into effect, and industry officials are calling on Congress to assert authority over Net Neutrality. However, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is holding firm on the new regulations.
