Net neutrality won yet another legal victory today when a federal appeals court upheld Federal Communications Commission rules that prohibit data throttling online.

But the fight for net neutrality isn t over yet — representatives from service providers like AT have already suggested that they ll appeal all the way to the Supreme Court.

Circuit Court of Appeals supported the FCC s rules in a 2-1 vote, Politico reports.

After a decade of debate & legal battles, today s ruling affirms FCC s ability to enforce the strongest possible internet protections, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler tweeted.

Several senators also celebrated the victory, including Senator Bernie Sanders, who said the ruling would help ensure we don t turn over our democracy to the highest bidder.

This win comes as the result of years of hard work and advocacy and the FCC listening to the constant drumbeat of millions of Americans demanding the strongest net neutrality rules ever.
