My Favorite Part:

"
Senator Ron Wyden swept away the notion that the FCC would have the power to regulate broadband rates by saying that the Internet Commerce Act (which he co-authored) expressly forbids anyone (including the FCC) from doing so.

Nonetheless, Wheeler provided explicit assurance the FCC would not exercise any power over pricing: “…there will be no rate regulation, no tariffs, no last-mile unbundling. Over the last 21 years, the wireless industry has invested almost $300 billion under similar rules, proving that modernized Title II regulation can encourage investment and competition.”

Nor have any service providers offered a compelling rationale for why reclassification would stifle innovation."
