Internet Association — a group that represents major tech companies including Facebook, Google, Amazon and Snapchat in Washington, says it will help fight the FCC's repeal of net neutrality rules.

What they're saying: "IA intends to act as an intervenor in judicial action against this order and, along with our member companies, will continue our push to restore strong, enforceable net neutrality protections through a legislative solution," said Michael Beckerman, the group's president.

Not happening yet: Advocacy groups, companies and state attorneys general are expected to be involved in litigation against the repeal — but lawsuits won't come until after the rollback is published by the FCC in the Federal Register. That is expected to happen in the coming weeks.
