TIA Joins Legal Fight Against FCC’s Title II Classification

Posted by at 11:58 am on August 6, 2015

Telecommunications Industry AssociationThe Telecommunications Industry Association today filed an amicus brief challenging the FCC’s move to reclassify broadband services under Title II of the Telecommunications Act of 1934.

It believes the FCC did not properly evaluate how the reclassification will impact spending on broadband services.

“The FCC failed to consider and respond adequately to extensive record evidence demonstrating that reclassification of broadband internet access as a common-carriage ‘telecommunications service’ would significantly diminish investment in broadband networks,” argued the TIA, which further called the FCC’s rulemaking “arbitrary and capricious.”

The TIA wants the FCC’s net neutrality rules, which went into effect in June, tossed. A number of other organizations have filed similar lawsuits against the FCC, the first of which will be heard in court come early December.
