The National Cable & Telecommunications Association says the Federal Communications Commission should adopt a sort of Hippocratic oath for broadband -- above all, do no arm -- and that applying common carrier regulations to Internet access would definitely violate it. NCTA says that if there is one conclusion that should be drawn from initial comments on the FCC's proposed "third way" title II reclassification of Internet access service, it is that it would be a "very bad idea" to impose the full force of those regulations. But even the FCC's proposal to apply on some of that force, while forbearing most of the Title II regulations, is not the way to go, said NCTA -- sticking with Title I ancillary authority or targeted legislation are both preferable.
