D.C. court rules in favor of the FCC on net neutrality

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of White House-backed FCC net neutrality rules, which are meant to ensure that broadband providers treat all internet traffic equally. The court's upholding is a defeat for major cable and telephone companies as it means internet service providers won't be able to build fast or slow lanes for web traffic. The industry's major trade group, the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, had argued that the rules would "undermine future investment... to the detriment of consumers." It also questioned whether the FCC even had the authority to judge wireless and cable companies together.
