Sweeping Victory: court of appeals upholds USA net neutrality rules

Today a U.S. appeals court issued a decision to uphold the FCC rules on net neutrality. The court’s decision is a decisive victory for pro net neutrality groups around the world because the biggest Internet innovator in the world is now leading the way to solid protections against discrimination on the Internet, with the notable exception of the issue of zero-rating, which was not part of the subject matter in the court case. In Europe, the final decision will be made by the European telecom regulators (BEREC) on 30 August. The public still has time to participate in BEREC's consultation until 18 July via www.savetheinternet.eu
