The Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler has released a statement on the DC Circuit court's decision to uphold the FCC’s Open Internet rules. I wouldn't celebrate just yet, in a separate statement, AT&T has made it clear that it is taking this case all the way to the Supreme Court.

Today’s ruling is a victory for consumers and innovators who deserve unfettered access to the entire web, and it ensures the internet remains a platform for unparalleled innovation, free expression and economic growth. After a decade of debate and legal battles, today’s ruling affirms the Commission’s ability to enforce the strongest possible internet protections آ– both on fixed and mobile networks آ– that will ensure the internet remains open, now and in the future.
