ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to begin the comment-gathering process to classify broadband Internet as a Title II telecommunications service. It notes that during a debate on June 17, 2010, three Democrats voted to clarify FCC's authority to regulate broadband while two Republicans voted otherwise. FCC commissioner Michael Copps argued that retaining broadband service under Title I would create legal uncertainty. INSET: CHEERS AND JEERS FOR TITLE II.
