FCC loses Comcast's court challenge, a major setback for agency on Internet policies

" Comcast on Tuesday won its federal lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission, in a ruling that undermines the agency's ability to regulate Internet service providers just as it unrolls a sweeping broadband agenda...."

Well-well, sometimes the people win. Perhaps this type of justice for t Internet users will spread across democracies? Time will tell.

so, comcast can legally discriminate between various types of internet traffic, which means net neutrality's first battle is probably lost....


next step will be testing the waters ie. if and when people will start to quit them and then a tweaked practice will become mainstream. let's hope it will be stopped early and be based on volume alone, rather than origin, but who will ever know.

perhaps ISPs have grown too powerful already.

This is hardly a win for the people, this is a win for corporations to do whatever they want whenever they want. Do you think it would be acceptable for comcast to say you cant access sites of their choosing?
