He expressed this expectation saying:“ I believe the FCC should reclassify consumer broadband service under Title II of the Telecommunications Act — while at the same time forbearing from rate regulation and other provisions less relevant to broadband services.“ A reaction from the part of Comcast Corp., one of the most important Internet providers, was made public after Obama’s speach. Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen said in a statement that the White House proposal “would be a radical reversal that would harm investment and innovation.“
