    The most straightforward response to this ruling, and the one that would ensure the ability of the FCC to enforce net neutrality, would be to revisit that 2002 decision, and treat broadband providers as common carriers and thus regulate them under their Title II authority.

    There are a variety of methods to ensure this including a review of spectrum policy in terms of providing cross-subsidies for underserved populations with this rhetorical proposal/threat to create free wireless and in exchange for re-regulatory clarity and force net neutrality onto corporate gatekeepers (the alternative being a public PTT-type corporation as an "option"instead of the below article's primary vendor/shill, M2Z):

    Sell us a chunk of spectrum in the Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) band (1.9GHz to 2.1GHz). We'll create a fast broadband service with some of it, and with the rest we'll build a free 768Kbps wireless network, rolled out to most Americans over a ten-year period. We'll even pay the US Treasury a percentage of our revenue, and fund the service with our own capital, partnership deals, and ads.
