ISPs are suing the FCC to fight new net neutrality rules

As anticipated, now that the new net neutrality rules are here lawsuits have closely followed. The Washington Post reports that industry group USTelecom -- which counts Verizon and AT&T execs among its board members -- filed suit in Washington, while small ISP Alamo Broadband (its website is powered by Wordpress) is suing in New Orleans. USTelecom has opposed the Title II powers invoked by the FCC's new rules, and isn't waiting until they're published in the Federal Register before suing. A Verizon lawsuit knocked down the FCC's previous net neutrality protections, and this next round is only just getting started.
