In this article the author discusses aspects on the efforts of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to regulate broadband internet services. He is critical on the measures undertaken by the FCC to govern internet access and to reclassify internet service companies as common carriers. He suggests that FCC must acknowledge its own integral limitations instead of considering an ancillary jurisdiction for the regulation of broadband internet access.
