    THE FCC’S REVISED OPEN INTERNET RULES COULD IMPOSE MORE STRINGENT DUTIES ON MOBILE BROADBAND PROVIDERS AND RECLASSIFY BROADBAND AS A TITLE II SERVICE

    FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler suggested in a recent SPEECH that he may not support any continuation of the FCC’s different and more lenient Internet rules for mobile broadband providers. The FCC’s old Internet rules were vacated by a federal court of appeals in January, and FCC action on new Open Internet rules, based on an NPRM issued in May, is currently pending. LNGS has prepared an ADVISORY that examines the implications of the rulemaking for mobile broadband providers, and also discusses the increasing possibility that the FCC will reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service subject to regulation under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934.
