Re: Oh really?

it also allows the FCC to tell congress it needs wide sweeping powers which it will probably get.

Considering how much the cable companies and telcos give to Congress every year I doubt the FCC gets any REAL authority.

Considering the political wad congress just blew in the health care fight, I doubt they're up for much of anything else....except maybe a cigarette and a nap.

The best bet is reclassification as a telecommunications service (which we all know it is) under Title II. Then if Congress doesn't like that, they can pass laws granting the FCC specific authority. I'd much rather have ISPs under tighter regulation and have Congress fight to justify relaxing them, rather than letting ISPs have free reign until Congess comes up with some feel-good yet ineffective law.
