US Court of Appeals rules in favor of net neutrality

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Web traffic is now treated equally.

The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., ruled in favor of net neutrality Tuesday.

This is a win for the Obama administration, consumer groups and content companies such as Netflix.

The rules prevent internet service providers from offering preferential treatment to sites that pay for faster service.

Companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T say it threatens innovation and undermines investment.
