With a full set of commissioners and a chief economist named, the Federal Communications Commission is set to undo network neutrality rules put in place during the Obama administration, but thorny issues around industry consolidation remain.

Former FCC commissioners, antitrust scholars, and at least one GOP senator share competition-related concerns about discarding net neutrality — the idea that internet service providers, who perform a gatekeeping function, should treat all data online equally, with no blocking, throttling, or unreasonable discrimination of legal content. On July 5, FCC Chairman Aji Pai announced that Jerry Ellig, a senior research fellow at George Mason University with a focus on competition policy, will lead economic analysis for rule-makings. President Donald Trump nominated Brendan Carr to the FCC for a Republican-designated seat, along with former FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel for a Democratic opening. That will make for a 3-2 Republican majority, up from the current 2-1 edge, with Pai and GOP-appointed Commissioner Michael O’Rielly often on opposite sides of votes with Democrat Mignon Clyburn.

Not really. ISPs have always been understood to be and have known themselves to be common law Title II telecommunications providers.

Even during the decades these Title II telecommunications providers were allegedly providing "something-else" invented by judicial personnel and Congressional staff; These secret porn viewers were committed to preserving "anonymous" access to free online pornography broadcasting by wire and radio.

The facts about Article III judicial-branch and Congressional employees being some of the most consistent viewers of free "anonymous" online porn broadcasts is, of course, widely known by litigation-happy ISPs. This consistent reception of illegal porn broadcasting is well documented by ISPs and then used for leverage.

Wi-fi was trademarked in 2000 but slightly before this time pornography began intruding into homes, ballparks, fairs, and elsewhere. By 2016, pornography was also broadcast into most schools with FCC assistance.

This means any online post of nakedness is an illegal broadcast by radio of "obscene, indecent, or profane" material. It does not make any difference whatsoever this naked material is not considered obscene.

The law prohibits "obscene, indecent, or profane" material from being broadcast to the unknown public; All three of: (1.obscene, 2. indecent, or 3. profane) are illegal to broadcast and are not protected as free speech when broadcast as a hazardous nuisance to the unknown. ISPs know U.S. Courts are determined to read 18 U.S.C. §§ (1462, 1464) as the solid porn-viewers the ISPs have known them to be for decades whether looking more at brown areola or preferring red areola.

The following two paragraphs are from 18 U.S.C. §§ (1462)

    (a) any obscene, lewd, lascivious, or filthy book, pamphlet, picture, motion-picture film, paper, letter, writing, print, or other matter of indecent character; ... .... .... ... ....
    Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both, for the first such offense and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both, for each such offense thereafter.

It makes absolutely no difference if Interim Chairman Pai wishes to revoke the Open Internet order or does not. Only Congress may write U.S. laws. Interim Chairman Pai can't keep ISPs from being the Title II telecommunications common carriers ISPs have all been since the days of dial-up.
