FCC Loses Comcast's Court Challenge

Tuesday Apr 6th 2010 by Datamation.com Staff

Appeals court ruling could jeopardize the agency's ability to regulate the Internet and delay implementation of the National Broadband Plan.

Although analysts are still debating the effect of the judicial ruling, the decision could have a major impact on the National Broadband Plan.
