That includes the definition of internet service providers as common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act; the application of the rules to mobile broadband providers; and the finding that the FCC's order was neither unconstitutional nor violated procedural safeguards. http://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/washington/court-upholds-fccs-net-neutrality-rules/157300 -or- http://tinyurl.com/hv77l4c This decision is far from final. Opponents will almost certainly appeal to the D.C. Circuit for en banc rehearing, and failing that, to the U.S. Supreme Court. Although the decision of the three-judge panel was unanimous, one judge -- Senior Judge Stephen Williams -- issued a partial dissent. Opponents will surely use that dissent as ammunition for a rehearing.
