Despite getting the green light, the exact rules have not been revealed and will remain a mystery for some unspecified length of time. "We will publish the order on our website as soon as next two steps are completed," said FCC chairman Tom Wheeler when quizzed after the vote.
"First, we have to get the dissents in, and second have to look at those dissents - and we are required to be responsive to the dissents. Then we will put it on the web. And at that point also file it with the Federal Register." He refused to give a timeframe for that process.

Dissent? Like not knowing what’s in it?
yeah cause Google wants you to buy it’s fiber that is what this is about
This is an insane process.
hence my "mass insanity" theory.
What I heard was that for profit corporations will not be able to slow down our service or give sweetheart deals to preferred groups. Why are we against that?
Because it introduces government control into what had heretofore a truly free form of communication.
This is nothing new. Back when the printing press was invented in the Middle Ages, the Powers That Be tried to control who printed what.
Recall the case of Martin Luther, the Holy Roman Church, and his 99 theses. He was FORBIDDEN by Pope Leo from printing and distributing the documents, but he did it anyway.
They probably have given themselves the power to tax the Internet. Wouldn’t that be special?
And Congress would never have to vote on taxing the Internet, ever.
Maybe we should start Bugging Google to release the Regulations online because they probably wrote the damned thing....
If that's all it did, it would require no more than 5 pages. This "rule" is 322 pages long. Like Obamacare, the devil is in the details.
” They probably have given themselves the power to tax the Internet. Wouldnt that be special?
And Congress would never have to vote on taxing the Internet, ever. “
Google and the other Large internet businesses probably wrote themselves in as the “middlemen” to collect internet taxes and then they shave off 10% off the top when they hand it in to the feds or some such crony type deal like that.
Just like how some of the major health insurance companies helped to write a huge chunk of obamacare...
Gee and surprise, surprise...
Treasury won’t explain decision to make $3 billion in Obamacare payments
“The U.S. Treasury Department has rebuffed a request by House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R- Wis., to explain $3 billion in payments that were made to health insurers even though Congress never authorized the spending through annual appropriations.”
I’m sure this FFC reg won’t benefit Google and big Boys AT ALL....
HA HA HA HA
The FSCK-ING JOKE IS ON ALL OF US!
What we have here is a massive executive bureaucracy that legislates massively.
Judge Napolitano on Fox belives what the FCC has done will go down in flames when it gets to the courts. I hope he is right.
Yep Definitely! Its Unconstitutional just like Obamacare was...
FCC = Federal Communications Czars
Because it is always a door to finding a way to limit what sites you can go to, what you may post to and of course you can always get a new bill from government for their expansion for the payment of new taxes and employees with big overpaid retirements we don’t need.
“Despite getting the green light, the exact rules have not been revealed and will remain a mystery for some unspecified length of time. “We will publish the order on our website as soon as next two steps are completed,” said FCC chairman Tom Wheeler when quizzed after the vote.”
They have to pass it before we can find out whats in it.
Just like any other stool sample.
I’ve read it is [like?] the Universal Service fee on the phone bill, but for everyone on the net. A few MORE bucks a month, times everyone online. Just yet another tax. And government regulation, to grow the beast. IMHO...
FCC = Fking Communist Control
