Yet another victory for the vast, overwhelming majority of us who don't benefit monetarily from investment in the Broadband/Cable/Telecommunications "cartels". The dissenting statements(read that as crybabies) included below at bottom we have heard from before. Ajit Pai is basically a lobbyist for Verizon and Michael O'Rielly we have encountered as the man who encourages vigilante action by licensed radio stations to "track down" pirate broadcasters.

FCC’s Open Internet rules will go into effect on June 12, 2015
WASHINGTON, June 11, 2015 – Today, the DC Circuit denied the request of broadband
providers to stay the FCC’s Open Internet rules. The following statement can be attributed to
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.
“This is a huge victory for Internet consumers and innovators! Starting Friday, there will be a
referee on the field to keep the Internet fast, fair and open. Blocking, throttling, pay-for-priority
fast lanes and other efforts to come between consumers and the Internet are now things of the
past. The rules also give broadband providers the certainty and economic incentive to build fast
and competitive broadband networks.”
To learn more about the FCC’s Open Internet rules, visit www.fcc.gov/openinternet.

"I am pleased that the FCC's Open Internet Order and strong rules to ensure there are no slow lanes on the
Internet become effective tomorrow. A free and open Internet is vital to our democracy and competitive
market. I am proud to stand up for the consumer to protect free speech and a free market."

Regarding DC Circuit Decision to Deny Stay of Open Internet Order
WASHINGTON, June 11, 2015 –“The Internet is the most dynamic platform for free speech ever
invented and our Internet economy is the envy of the world. Sustaining this platform, which
keeps us innovative, fierce, and creative, should not be a choice – it should be an obligation.
That’s why I am pleased that the D.C. Circuit declined to stay our Open Internet rules, which will
take effect tomorrow.”
on the D.C. Circuit’s Decision to Review Internet Regulations Promptly
WASHINGTON, June 11, 2015.—Because President Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet is already
harming broadband investment and deployment, I am pleased that the D.C. Circuit will be hearing the
appeal of President Obama’s plan on an expedited basis. Although I am disappointed that the court did
not stay the rules pending its review, this development was not unexpected. The bar for granting any stay
is quite high, and I am pleased that the court did not suggest that the rules are in fact legally valid. I
welcome the court’s coming examination of the FCC’s 313-page order, during which it will have an
opportunity to address the order’s serious procedural and substantive flaws.
Regarding DC Circuit Decision to Deny Stay of Net Neutrality Order
WASHINGTON, June 11, 2015. —I am disappointed by the court’s decision to deny a stay of
the Net Neutrality Order. The fight against the Commission’s rules, however, has only just
begun, because unless eradicated they will ultimately harm the foundations of the Internet, and
limit its possibilities. In the meantime, I will be vigilant in resisting any attempts by the agency
to act as a referee enforcing rules known to none of the players and made up along the way.
