The Walking Dead: “Open Internet” Rules Live Again

Date: 05/22/24

On May 7, 2024, the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”), led by Democratic Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel, released a Declaratory Ruling, Order, Report and Order, and Order on Reconsideration (collectively, “Order”) to classify and adopt “open Internet” rules for providers of mass-market retail broadband Internet access service (“BIAS”). The Order was adopted by a 3-2 vote, with the Republican commissioners dissenting. The new rules will take effect July 22, 2024, except for certain changes to the transparency rule, which must first be approved by the Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”).
