According to the FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, it does not matter what rules the Federal Communications Commission implements on net neutrality – the system will face lawsuits from the largest broadband providers anyway.
The FCC admitted that lawsuits have always been regarded as inevitable, but it was still worth moving ahead with introduction more cautiously. Its head warned that the largest Internet service providers are planning to sue, regardless of what comes out, so the Commission has to make sure it has sustainable rules. Apparently, this starts with making sure they have addressed the multiplicity of issues that come along and are likely to be raised.
The FCC claimed it wants to move forward on open-internet rules with dispatch, saying that it also wants to have open Internet rules that are sustained. Hopefully, that is the process the Commission is going through at the moment.
As you may remember, the net neutrality proposals by President Obama, which were laid out earlier this month, called for the “strongest possible rules” to make sure that access to the worldwide web becomes a protected resource. At the time, Obama called an open Internet “essential to the American economy, and increasingly to our very way of life”. This is when he asked the Federal Communications Commission to regulate Internet as a “common carrier” in order to prevent broadband providers from giving privileged connections to paying customers.
In respond, the largest cable companies in the country, represented by their industry body the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, claimed they were “stunned” by Obama’s proposals. The largest ISPs believe such suggestions were “extreme” in comparison to the longstanding, bipartisan policy of lightly regulating the web.
For example, AT&T immediately explicitly threatened a lawsuit, claiming that if the Federal Communications Commission puts such rules in place, the ISP would participate in a legal challenge to such action.
Until Obama’s proposal, the Commission was going to hold a vote in December on whether to introduce mild regulation supporting net neutrality. The proposals were expected to be a compromise between the interests of the broadband providers and Internet firms, but they have now been put on hold, with the vote being delayed to 2015.

|why is everything got to be governed by america and their silly rules, its about time every country just told them to do one, all they do is cause aggravation to other countries...|
they aint happy unless they're bombing innocent countries for greed...
You really think it's America behind all this stuff going on in the world? Better research who is pushing for these things, who benefits in the long (and short) term and where, and from whom, did these ideas originate from and what are their policy goals? Thats just a start.
The whole of the American Government is a 'face job', meaning that those who you see in office talking this and that really have no power, they are beholden to the hidden 'masters' who pull their strings and make them dance.
Take a look at all the people in the actual ,true Power positions of American government and tell me - where do they come from and from what peoples are they pledging their true allegiance too? They are the only ones, out of every ethnic group in America, who are allowed dual citizenship while in American Government positions. They are also the only ones who have a lobby group for their country, not a corporation, but their COUNTRY. No one else has that advantage. They are also the only ones who have a Presidential position for a 'Liason' to their community - no other ethnic group has that position or is allowed the same.
i could go on and on,but Ive been censored and threatened with loss of status or banning on ET before for naming names, so I leave it to you all to figure it out.
|Corporate America is a greedy godless hypocritical horde so corrupt they make the mafia look good.|
|The USA is so halfass backwards it's just a joke to a lot of others.|
What happened to the government regulating corporations?
Now we have corporations trying to regulate the government.
Okay that's not really a joke.
That's just sad.
