The Last Time The FCC Classified A Service As Title II Was 2007. Here’s How It Worked
Wetmachine » Tales of the Sausage Factory » The Last Time The FCC Classified A Service As Title II Was 2007. Here’s How It Worked.: "The FCC continued to find that wireless services were competitive in that there were 4 national competitors who all said we didn’t need a voice roaming rule and that Title II would interfere with innovation, the free market, etc. The FCC adopted a Title II classification anyway because classification doesn’t have anything to do with the state of competition. It has to do with whether the FCC decides that the service meets the definition of “telecommunications service” in 47 U.S.C. 153, and — for wireless — that the service is a “commercial mobile radio service” (CMRS), or the functional equivalent of CMRS, pursuant to 47 U.S.C. 332(d)."
