Publication of FCC rules in Federal Register to happen soon.


The new rules for network neutrality promulgated by the Federal Communications Commission have now sent to the Federal Register.  However, I found the proposed rule had already been published July 1, 2014,  “Promoting and Protecting the Open Internet”, here.  There is a Broadband Policy page where I would expect the latest updated publication to appear, here
  
The New York Times reported on the publication event in a story by Rebecca Ruiz, on Monday, p. A3, here. There is a history of how Tim We popularized the term “net neutrality”. 
   
Fierce Telecom (is this “Fierce Markets”, where I know some people?) says it takes some time for the formal republication, before trade groups will sue, link here. The new rules are based on the classification of telecomm companies as "utilities"..
