FCC finally gets around to denying net neutrality complaint against Verizon
The Federal Communications Commission has finally gotten around to denying a network neutrality complaint filed against Verizon in July 2016, two years before the FCC eliminated its net neutrality rules. The complaint by Verizon customer Alex Nguyen was the only formal net neutrality complaint the FCC received during the three years its rules were in place. Nguyen alleged that Verizon took numerous actions that blocked third-party devices and applications from being used on its network. While the FCC received tens of thousands of informal net neutrality complaints, which could be filed for free, Nguyen had to pay a $225 filing fee for his formal complaint and go through a court-like proceeding in which the parties appear before the FCC and file numerous documents to address legal issues. The Ajit Pai FCC moved ahead with a net neutrality repeal vote in Dec 2017 and officially took the rules off the books in June 2018 -- still without having acted on Nguyen's complaint. The FCC's inaction ended Aug 6, when the FCC released an order rejecting Nguyen's complaint.
