The FCC has NO legal power to enforce nor require any of these things done. Why doesn't anyone on here get that??!?!?!?!?!
The FCC apparently believes it does. Congress hasn't taken any steps to rein in the FCC's interpretation of the existing Communications Act. The FCC proceeded with so-called "neutrality" even after the federal appellate court ruled the FCC had no authority.
It seems like the FCC is pushing for Congress or the Supreme Court to decide. Making proposals to the FCC indicates Comcast doesn't want to force the issue either.
I think everyone knows that if an ISP began acting like the FCC has no power, Congress or the Supreme Court would act. For example, if an ISP began blocking VoIP (to promote its own preferred VoIP service), or charging extra to watch teevee on the internet.
So, the FCC has power. We just don't know exactly what that power is yet. The FCC has taken steps to force the issue. For example, the new Congress will get the fun job of dealing with the devils in the details rather than sitting on the sidelines and screaming "No!"
