Verizon Challenges FCC's Net Neutrality Push

Verizon Communications, one of the parent companies of Verizon Wireless, has filed an appeal with the U.S. court over the Federal Communication Commission's recently proposed net neutrality rules. In a prepared statement, Michael E. Glover, Verizon senior vice president and deputy general counsel, said, "We are deeply concerned by the FCC's assertion of broad authority for sweeping new regulation of broadband networks and the Internet itself. We believe this assertion of authority goes well beyond any authority provided by Congress, and creates uncertainty for the communications industry, innovators, investors and consumers." In December, the FCC voted in favor of net neutrality rules for both wired and wireless broadband networks. The provisions impacting mobile operators state that wireless providers would not be able to block users from accessing any web site. Wireless providers also wouldn't be allowed to block internet calling services that make use of wireless broadband data connections. The providers would also have to publicly disclose their network management practices.
