Verizon has taken it upon itself to challenge the set of rules regarding net neutrality laid out by the FCC. The challenge is going to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and in it Verizon and their legal team state they are “concerned” with the FCC’s “assertion of broad authority for sweeping new regulation of broadband networks and the Internet itself.”

This comes after Verizon and Google issued their own opinion on how net neutrality should go down, something the FCC disagreed with slightly. Sit back for round two (or is it three) in the battle for net neutrality.
