FCC Sends Internet Competition Rules To Federal Register

The Federal Communications Commission has sent its network neutrality regulations to the Federal Register for publication, an FCC spokesperson said on Monday.

The rules, designed to prevent Internet companies from engaging in anticompetitive behavior, were sent to the Register on Friday.

The Federal Register usually publishes such regulations within 1-3 weeks of receiving them, and the regulations will then take effect 60 days after publication.

Once published, the rules will likely face a new round of challenge from critics who say they are unneeded and overly broad. Earlier this year Verizon sued to block the regulations but a court ruled that the company had to wait until they were published in the Federal Register.

The House has also voted to overturn the rules, with a similar measure awaiting action in the Senate.
