FCC's Net Neutrality Rules to be Published in Federal Register

By Marc Martin and Marty Stern

The controversial net neutrality rules adopted in the 2010 Open Internet Order will be published in tomorrow’s Federal Register, with a proposed effective date of November 20, 2011. The new rules were placed on the Federal Register’s public inspection page the day before its expected publication. The publication of the full rules follows the Office of Management and Budget’s approval of the information collection requirements mandated by the Open Internet Order earlier this month. Publication of the rules will enable net neutrality opponents in Congress and the broadband industry to launch their expected challenges to the FCC’s jurisdiction to regulate the network management practices of broadband service providers.
