Treat: RIFO Is Upheld and the Internet Remains Open

The WasteWatcher is the staff blog of Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) and the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW). For questions, contact blog@cagw.org.


The FCC's Restoring Internet Freedom Order (RIFO) was upheld by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit on October 1, 2019.  Instead of being smothered by the heavy hand of government regulation, broadband internet access services (BIAS) were found to be an information service under Title I of the Communications Act of 1934.  Consumers and taxpayers can look forward to fantastic uses of the internet as companies continue to invest and innovate, including 5G mobile networks.
