Re: Run the clock
Well, to be fair, any time there's a new regulatory change of any kind, costs go up in that industry because more money, time, and resources have to be spent on compliance and legal analysis.

In this case, of course, probably a bit more costs in the case of ISPs who wish to challenge it.  ;)

Re: Run the clock
Yes, if we were going to disregard and whine about every piece of still-useful legislation just because it's old we'd be very busy indeed. "Damn Constitution, why are we trying to apply ancient restrictions upon such a magnificant and modern age!" :)

Re: Run the clock
It's interesting how Comcast inserts the scare of "1930s" type of regulations, which must be pointing to the communications act that regulated the airwave for radio of the day and forward to today. Without that Act there would most likely have been chaos in the radio industry which in my estimation would have eventually led to some sort of government intervention anyway.

Re: Run the clock
I can't wait for the "unnecessary and ambiguous Title II" fee that's going to be tacked on to consumer bills yet not tied to any actual costs incurred by the carriers. :)

Re: Run the clock
And in the meantime, compliance costs will go up for all carriers as their corporate counsel work to understand and prepare for the new regime (run the clock or not, you still need to have analysts understanding what could happen), and consumers pay.

Yay, democracy!

Run the clock
I'm not as confident as Comcast. Republicans and other net neutrality opponents seem likely to be able to run the clock on this until 2017, when a new White House will write the rules.
