(Telecompaper) The US Justice Department has taken legal action against California after the state’s governor Jerry Brown signed into law the net neutrality legislation passed earlier by state lawmakers, a filing at the Justice Department shows. The news was first reported by the Washington Post. The California law, which is expected to go into effect on 1 January, ¬†aims to stop internet providers from blocking or throttling legal apps and websites, and prohibits the prioritisation of content. It also bans zero-rating for specific apps in a point going further than the nation’s 2015 net neutrality laws, since revoked by the FCC in 2017.¬†
