Re: Didn't....

This story is good reading for those who've been mercilessly criticizing the FCC for the weak Net Neutrality rules. You have to remember they only have a knife to bring to the gunfight. They only have as much authority as Congress has given to them in the Communications Act. It's not unlimited. They've already had previous attempts against Comcast struck down by the courts. And the current Congress certainly ain't gonna give them more regulatory authority.

Uh... if they just reclassified telecom under Title II, they'd have the authority to do whatever the heck they want.

Yea, and until/unless they do that, they're severely limited. Do you think they ever would? Politically I don't think they could get away with it.
