HWG Files Amicus Brief on Behalf of Twilio Inc. in D.C. Circuit Challenge to Net Neutrality Repeal
Today, Twilio Inc. filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, supporting legal challenges to the FCC’s repeal of its net neutrality rules. In its brief, Twilio argues that it invested in reliance on the strong FCC protections for net neutrality. Moreover, without effective regulation and oversight, Twilio argues that communications providers will block and throttle lawful content and applications where doing so is in their economic interest, as has been the case in the text messaging context.
