Comcast today appealed to the U.S. Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit the Federal Communications Commission’s Aug. 20 order finding Comcast violated the Commission’s Open Internet principles. The following is the statement of Gigi B. Sohn, president and co-founder of Public Knowledge:
“We expected Comcast would appeal the Commission’s order. The company opposed it every step of the way, even as they failed to disclose their throttling of Internet traffic. We believe the Commission will prevail and the rights of Internet users will be protected.”
