Why does he even say those things?  He's not telling us a damn thing.  When politicians start with the whole "innovation, freedom, good stuff, et cetera", I just hear "We have control.  We keep you safe." over and over.

Did you see the part where you are a 'consumer'? Language sure does change when its not an election year.

Quote
the FCC's new rules forbid Internet providers from blocking lawful content and they require transparency from ISPs. They also require that network management and packet discrimination to be "reasonable," but that only applies to wireline broadband. Wireless operators gets a free pass on rationality; they're limited only to the transparency and blocking provisions.

Some quotes from the order in that article as well.

The new rules were apparently published 2 days *after* this was approved (again, wtf?).  Reading them now.
