Tom Wheeler makes history with full-on Net neutrality proposal
Internet freedom at last! FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's proposal is for full Title II reclassification for ISPs, defining ISPs as utilities and preventing fast-lane profiteering Despite all the lobbying money, all the public fearmongering, and all the threats of disaster and doom from the big ISPs and their minions, the FCC will vote this month to classify Internet service providers as Title II common carriers. The proposal put forth by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is a watershed event.That this is occurring in 2015 instead of many years ago is due to several factors. For one, the FCC has kicked this can down the road for decades, with various commissioners taking a milquetoast approach or instituting rules that carried no weight. As the courts noted, the rules imposed on the ISPs by the FCC in 2010 were baseless because the FCC itself had declined to classify ISPs properly. These massive monopolies and oligopolies were still technically “information services,” not telecommunication providers.
