Cable Companies Urge Judges To Kill ‘Net Neutrality’ Rules

An anonymous reader quotes 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…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…

The cable groups said the court should correct “serious errors” in a decision “that radically reshapes federal law governing a massive sector of the economy, which flourished due to hundreds of billions of dollars of investment made in reliance on the policy the order throws overboard”.. In its filing on Friday, the CTIA said it was illegal to subject broadband internet access to “public-utility style, common carrier regulation” and illegal to impose “common-carrier status on mobile broadband.”
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said he wasn’t surprised to see “the big dogs” challenging net neutrality.
