FCC Net neutrality rules set to go into effect after court denies stay
June 11, 2015
The Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality rules will go into effect Friday after a court decided not to block them.
The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. on Thursday denied a request by several broadband providers and opponents to the FCC's Open Internet order or net neutrality rules.
The rules, passed by a partisan 3-2 vote in February, require Internet service providers to give consumers access to all legal content and applications on an equal basis, without favoring some sources or blocking others.
