Verizon Officially Appeals FCC Neutrality Rules Again

Posted by at 1:22 am on October 1, 2011

Verizon on Friday formally submitted a federal appeal against the FCC’s net neutrality rules now that they should take effect. The telecom giant repeated the same general complaints it made when it made a premature appeal in January. It tried to portray the US agency as out of control, making “potentially sweeping and unneeded regulations” and fostering “uncertainty” in the industry.

“Verizon is fully committed to an open Internet,” deputy general counsel Michael Glover insisted.

MetroPCS, which objected to rules that it was already violating by blocking Netflix for some users, has yet to follow with any challenge of its own.
