'Decisive and Tremendous Win' for Net Neutrality as DC Court Upholds Rules

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

In a huge win for internet freedom, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was within its jurisdiction to enact sweeping net neutrality regulations last year.

That means the internet will remain a public service classified under Title II of the Communications Act—upholding the FCC's power to ensure that all carriers, including mobile and broadband, treat all internet traffic equally.

A great win for us all. We can at least be a free people online ...even if we don't experience that freedom in our lives. People should celebrate this because media consolidation has a real counterbalance in a free and open net.

A free speech net !

Are they going to appeal? Do we know?

I'm sure that that is the next move but will this present evenly divided court even bother to hear it? Most likely they will wait till after the election if the Senate stays the course and they somehow manage to keep the majority. A lot if if ands and butts in W.DC. these days
