Sonic CEO: I Welcome Being Regulated As A Common Carrier

Apparently not all ISPs are worried about being regulated by the Federal Communications Commission. Sonic CEO Dane Jasper says he is actually "supportive of being regulated as a common carrier."

It is important to draw the distinction between regulation of the Internet, and regulation of carriers. The FCC’s order will disallow carriers from discriminating against sources of traffic that their customers choose to access via the Internet. This is common carriage at its core, and as a carrier, I am supportive of being regulated as a common carrier by the FCC.
