Benton Sues FCC Over Restoring Internet Freedom Order

Author: 

The Benton Foundation marked the Feb 27 OneMoreVote network neutrality activist day by filing suit against the Federal Communications Commission's Dec. 14 decision to roll back network neutrality rules. "The Restoring Internet Freedom order will allow giant telecommunications companies to create 'fast lanes' and other discriminatory practices that will stifle innovation and diminish the Internet as a platform for free expression," said Benton Executive Director Adrianne Furniss. Benton has long supported strong network neutrality rules and Title II classification of ISPs, including backing the 2015 Open Internet order that the Dec. 14 Restoring Internet Freedom vote essentially reversed.
