Needs further updating for Common Carrier status[edit]

I'm not an expert, so I'm not going to make the changes, but I think it's pretty clear that the significance and meaning of this case has changed since this article was written. In 2015, the year after this decision, the FCC cited this case and the continuing need for Net Neutrality as the reason to class ISPs as "common carriers". This gave the FCC extremely broad jurisdiction and was widely seen as a huge win for Net Neutrality. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.231.58.8 (talk) 16:40, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
