Trade groups, AT&T urge U.S. court to reverse ‘net neutrality’ rules

By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Trade associations representing wireless, cable and broadband operators on Friday urged the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to reverse a ruling upholding the Obama administration’s landmark rules barring internet service providers from obstructing or slowing consumer access to web content. A three-judge panel in June, in a 2-1 decision, backed the Federal Communications Commission’s so-called net neutrality rules put in place last year to make internet service providers treat all internet traffic equally. Wireless trade association CTIA said in a court filing on Friday seeking a rehearing that “few final rules of any federal administrative agency have ever had so much potential to affect the lives of so many Americans.” AT&T also urged the court to reverse the ruling.
