FCC Chairman Promises To Regulate The Internet As A Utility If Needed To Protect Net Neutrality | TechCrunch

In a sternly worded blog post today, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler further explained his views on net neutrality, detailing how he plans to implement them.

Most important in his comments is a promise to regulate Internet service as a utility if needed. Wheeler is plain: “The proposal before us now turns out to be insufficient or if we observe anyone taking advantage of the rule, I won’t hesitate to use Title II.”

Remember the days when the Internet was going to free us from the heavy hand of government?

Yeah, me neither.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
