The Federal Communications Commission is asking a federal appeals court to dismiss two legal challenges to its new "network neutrality" regulations. Those rules, adopted by the agency last month, prohibit phone and cable companies from interfering with traffic on their broadband networks.
The rules are being challenged by Verizon Communications Inc. and Metro PCS Communications Inc., which argue that the FCC has exceeded its legal authority. The companies filed in the federal appeals court in the District of Columbia. That is the same court that ruled last year that the FCC had overstepped in sanctioning Comcast Corp. for discriminating against online file-sharing traffic on its broadband network.
The FCC argues that Verizon and Metro PCS filed their challenges prematurely since the new rules have not yet been published in the federal register.
