FCC to Begin 'Restoring Internet Freedom Order' Implementation in April - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThe Federal Communications Commission has set April 23 as the effective date of an order that would repeal internet regulations the Obama administration implemented in 2015.

Changes under the Restoring Internet Freedom Order will go into effect in April except for certain amendatory instructions, which are subject to the Office of Management and Budget‘s approval of information collection requirements and will be delayed until further notice, FCC said in a Federal Register document published Thursday.

The order will reclassify broadband internet access service as a “lightly-regulated information service” and bring back the private mobile service classification of mobile broadband internet service.

Under the order, FCC will also direct internet service providers to disclose information about their network management practices, performance and commercial terms of service.

FCC will issue another document in the Federal Register to announce the effective date of the delayed instructions as well as the new rules’ declaratory ruling, report and order, and order.
