WASHINGTON -- On Thursday, Verizon announced it would file a suit challenging the Federal Communications Commission's December Net Neutrality order.

Free Press Policy Counsel Aparna Sridhar made the following statement:

“Verizon’s decision demonstrates that even the most weak and watered-down rules aren’t enough to appease giant phone companies. It’s ironic that Verizon is unhappy with rules that were written to placate it, and it’s now clear that it will settle for nothing less than total deregulation and a toothless FCC in the relentless pursuit of profit.”
