Free Press dropped its lawsuit over the Federal Communications Commission's network neutrality rules. The group had argued that the FCC’s rules did not go far enough, and the goal of its lawsuit was to force the FCC to expand the scope of the regulations.
The Free Press suit alleged that the rules arbitrarily provided less protection for wireless Internet access, such as through smartphones, than traditional wired Internet access. "We felt that there were better ways to accomplish our goals of promoting Internet freedom, and decided to direct our resources elsewhere in the continued campaign to preserve the open Internet," said Matt Wood, Free Press policy director.
