First net neutrality complaint could be from Commercial Network Services

Everyone in Washington is waiting for the first complaint to be filed under the Federal Communications Commission’s open Internet rules which just went into effect last Friday.

While many expected Level 3 or Cogent to be among the first, those companies have been busy cutting interconnection deals with Internet service providers.

But the first could turn out to be Commercial Network Services, which is said to be filing a complaint against Time Warner Cable (TWC), according to a Washington Post report.

CNS streams live events from its webcams and the company is accusing TWC of a “blatant violation” of the rules.

Time Warner Cable responded that it’s following the letter of the law.

The bigger question will be how the FCC will investigate and handle the complaints.
