Will Comcast's Own Words Kill Its Lawsuit Against The FCC?
from the seems-pretty-damning dept
But a much bigger problem for Comcast may be the fact that the company has had no problem actively promoting the FCC's supposed "mandate" over them when it suits them. In a separate lawsuit over the very same traffic shaping, Comcast tried to get out of the lawsuit by claiming it was an issue covered by the FCC:
This issue "i.e., the reasonableness of a broadband provider's network management practices" has, however, been firmly placed within the jurisdiction of the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"), an administrative agency whose authority to regulate internet broadband access companies' services is well-established.You have to imagine that this quote from Comcast will be prominently displayed by the FCC in response to Comcast's latest action.
