FCC reportedly close to [sort of] reclassifying ISPs as common carriers

(Ars): http://arstechnica.com/business/2014/10/fcc-reportedly-close-to-reclassifying-isps-as-common-carriers/

    "The head of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is
     reportedly close to proposing a "hybrid approach" to network
     neutrality in which Internet service providers would be partially
     reclassified as common carriers, letting the commission take a
     harder stance against Internet fast lane deals. However, the
     proposal would not completely outlaw deals in which Web services
     pay for faster access to consumers."
