It only took three days, longer than we thought it would, for Verizon to file a lawsuit to appeal the FCC's recently released net neutrality rules. Verizon had to wait until the rules were published in the Federal Register, which happened on September 23rd. Michael E. Glover, Verizon senior vice president and deputy general counsel, assures netizens that the company is "fully committed to an open Internet," it none-the-less takes issue with the FCC's attempt to institute new "broad" and "sweeping" regulations on the telecommunications industry.

This will probably not be the last lawsuit to suspend and repeal the new rules. Sprint and AT&T's lawyers we are sure are sharpening their legal claws to get into the fight.
