Analysis: The FCC’s Remand Docket sets right legal and policy direction to preserve Open Internet

“The Consumer Federation of America (CFA) released a report today analyzing the decision by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to rewrite its Open Internet Order under the
Section 706 authority established in recent ruling of the United States Court of Appeals for the District Of Columbia Circuit. Applying principles derived from a number of well-known decision making frameworks, CFA concludes that the FCC picked the right place to start the effort to implement a Broadband Network Compact. The report also outlined a comprehensive strategy to simultaneously pursue several other major elements of the Compact like universal service and consumer protection. The report was filed as CFA’s initial comments in the “Open Internet Remand” docket.”
