Nothing to worry about. The government is just protecting us.

From ourselves, since we don't know what is good for us.

Among its many determinations, the FCC stated that broadband providers do not enjoy First Amendment protections because they do not have a right to free speech.

“The rules we adopt today do not curtail broadband providers’ free speech rights,” the commission said on page 268 of its decision, noting that because they merely serve as a means for others to express themselves, broadband providers are not entitled to free speech rights themselves.

“When engaged in broadband Internet access services, broadband providers are not speakers, but rather serve as conduits for the speech of others," the FCC stated.

I see they wrote it in government double talk.
The whole things could have been done in English, in two pages tops.

But then it would not have taken 10+ years of accumulated employees time.
