Regulations adopted last year by the Federal Communications Commission on open internet, or net neutrality, will be officially published soon.

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget signed off on the regulations Friday. They will be published in the Federal Register within one to three weeks and take effect 60 days after publication.

Internet providers are required to treat competing online content fairly but are allowed to manage network access and traffic.

The fight over the new regulations is not over, however. Reuters reports the move will trigger a set of legal challenges.

Verizon attempted to sue the FCC over the new regulations but an appeals court ruled the lawsuit could not move forward before publication of the regulations.
