The suing attorneys general called the change "arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of discretion", in a petition filed Tuesday at the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington. Gen. Xavier Becerra. "As home to countless startups and technology giants alike, California knows this better than anywhere else".

"A free and open internet drives innovation, economic growth, and consumer choice", said California Atty. So there's still little chance this move will be successful in restoring net neutrality.

Most Republicans in Congress and telecommunications companies strongly opposed the regulations, which classified broadband as a more highly regulated utility-like service under Title 2 of federal telecommunications law.

As if trying to get one more vote isn't enough pressure, the Democrats are hamstrung by the clock. In turn, customers will need to make careful choices about the internet services they use and the trade-offs those choices will require them to make when it comes to speed, quality of service, and pricing.
