“The outcome of today’s U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruling is a landmark event in the history of the internet. The court’s decision to uphold and recognize the legality of strong, enforceable net neutrality rules for both mobile and fixed broadband internet connections is a victory for U.S. consumers. Through this ruling, the court has ensured that paid prioritization, blocking, and discrimination of content has no place in a free and open internet.

Internet companies will remain engaged to ensure enforceable net neutrality rules permanently protect consumers from censorship online.”
