Net Neutrality: Victory is yet to come, major US telecoms to challenge the approval


Many of us might just have thought that we have had a victory with regard to Net Neutrality when the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barrack Obama approved the Net Neutrality rules. But it seems now that the war is not yet over.centurylink-sues-fcc-net-neutrality

According to the reports, the major telecommunications companies are set to challenge the approval given by the President of the United States of America at the court of law.

Some of the telecom companies have always been against some of the rules of Net Neutrality, while some have been completely against the whole thing only. Now, in case, the Telecom companies actually go to the court against the orders of the President of the United States of America, we could well see a delay in the implementations of the rules aimed to protect Net Neutrality.

The fear is that in case the issues moves up to the court, it could well take years before any final judgment is given leading to unwanted circumstances for the users during this period of time.

The approval from the President of the United States of America came early this year as the federal communications commission adopted the rules this February. The new rules stopped the internet services providers and cable providers to charge extra for some of the content that was being delivered to the users. It was in April that quite a few companies decided to challenge the new rules and regulations in the United States Court of Appeal.

The main point pushed through by the Internet Service Providers is that in case the rules of Net Neutrality are imposed, they will suffer huge financial losses. In a statement, the companies have stated that they are not looking to harm the users in any way, but only wish to look after their own well being as well.
