FCC's Title 2 regulation for the Broadband Industry

This is an interesting article on how the FCC is trying to tighten it's grip on the Broadband Industry by going back and redefining what the Internet and Broadband connections mean. The article starts out as reporting more on the discussions and trends of the FCC in regard to Title 2 and then goes into more of an op-ed piece.

Apparently AT&T's U-Verse program is going to be halted or significantly slowed if this change occurs. The article mentions how VOIP is dead from a competition (and maybe innovation) perspective because of the FCCs moves. I'm not sure how true this is and/or if this was bound to happen anyways due to competition from the larger telecom companies or not.
