Comcast Given 30 Days to Disclose Network Management Practices, Says FCC Order

In follow up to August 1st ruling against Comcast, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in a 67 page order released today has given Comcast 30 days “to disclose the details of their unreasonable network management practices, submit a compliance plan describing how it intends to stop these unreasonable management practices by the end of the year, and disclose to both the Commission and the public the details of the network management practices that it intends to deploy following termination of its current practices.”

The FCC has also said that if Comcast does not follow the timeline issued today, it will be subject to the following 3 steps:

1. Interim injunctive relief automatically will take effect requiring Comcast to suspend the network management practices within 35 days of the release of this order;
2. The Enforcement Bureau will immediately issue an order directing Comcast to show cause why a permanent cease-and-desist order should not be issued against it; and
3. A hearing will be set for thirty days after Comcast’s receipt of that order.
