Wireless regulation under Title II is the model for net neutrality, Wheeler says

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said his model for the way forward on net neutrality regulations is the way that the wireless industry has been regulated as common carriers under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. Speaking at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Wheeler said that the FCC will seek to hold broadband providers to a legal standard of what is "just and reasonable" in evaluating whether their practices violate rules on transparency, discrimination and paid periodization.
