A trade group representing more than 40 of the country’s biggest tech companies announced on Friday plans to intervene in a lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) over its 2017 order dismantling net neutrality protections for American consumers.
The announcement by the Internet Association (IA) came less than a day after the FCC published the full text of the Restoring Internet Freedom Order (RIFO) on its website.

Michael Beckerman, CEO of the IA, which represents Amazon, Google, and Netflix, among other top tech firms, said the rules FCC order “defies the will of a bipartisan majority of Americans and fails to preserve a free and open internet.”
