Issue Analysis: Title II Regulation of the Internet

After a decision by a Federal Appeals Court in January struck down the FCC's ability to enforce Net Neutrality, the agency has been looking for new ways to regulate the internet. One proposal is to classify internet service providers as "common carriers" under Title II of the Federal Communications Act of 1934.
