Telcos, industry groups sound off on FCC's new net neutrality rules

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, according to various reports, is going to circulate a proposal to other commission members to codify net neutrality rules that would reclassify broadband as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. A number of traditional telcos, including AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ), have already threatened legal challenges to the new rules, something the FCC said it's prepared for. The chairman's proposal has drawn a number of diverse responses. FierceWireless has taken the time to gather them in a new report.
