Great speech but is that all it is?

"In view of these challenges and opportunities, and because it is vital that the Internet continue to be an engine of innovation, economic growth, competition and democratic engagement, I believe the FCC must be a smart cop on the beat preserving a free and open Internet."

Smart words coming from an articulate person and I want to believe but if one thing that history has shown us is that history repeats itself and a seemingly unlimited money supply can do anything it wants. If the Bells/Cable providers don't want something they will do whatever is necessary for their benefit (or in their words "the stock holders") and not for the consumer. Julius also makes me a bit nervous being he seems more like a lawyer by looking at his background than being the head of a very technical entity. I can only hope he has the right advisors and not a group of people with an agenda. We will see I guess. Hope for the best plan for the worst.
