I've only had the time for about 80 pages. But so far, nothing I've read is anything other than exactly what I expected, and it very accurately reflects the previous two documents from the FCC, on the proposed rule changes.
No Paid Prioritization. Paid prioritization occurs when a broadband provider accepts
payment (monetary or otherwise) to manage its network in a way that benefits particular content,
applications, services, or devices. To protect against “fast lanes,” this Order adopts a rule that establishes
A person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service, insofar as such
person is so engaged, shall not engage in paid prioritization.

I'm not saying all regulation is good. Far from it. Over regulation is tyranny. But this isn't an all or nothing reality we live in. It's all about finding the best location in the gray area. That goes for just about everything.
Out of control regulation sucks as does an over sized government. But having no regulations and or no government isn't even possible, at least not for humanity it seems, because people are maniacs who brutalize everything and everyone when not put in check somehow. Hell even when we do have laws and regulations people still brutalize each other when given the chance sometimes. Imagine if there really wasn't anything else stopping them.
