U.S. FCC pressured to regulate broadband in net neutrality spat

Grant Gross | May 2, 2014
Net neutrality advocates call on the FCC to reclassify broadband as a regulated, common-carrier service.

Still binding "doesn't mean it's forever binding," Marvin Ammori, a net neutrality advocate and fellow at the New America Foundation, said in an email. "Just still. Can be changed."

In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 2005 decision called Brand X, gave the FCC the discretion to decide how to classify broadband, Wood and Ammori said.

The Supreme Court "didn't say, 'you're right FCC; broadband is an information service,'" Wood said. "It said this is the FCC's call to make."
