On 12 March 2015, the FCC released its much anticipated Report and Order on Remand, Declaratory Ruling, and Order (Order) that reclassified providers of broadband Internet access service (BIAS) as providers subject to Title II regulation as stipulated in the Telecommunications Act of 1996. In the Order, the FCC took note of a September 2014 NERA White Paper on the economic repercussions of Title II Reclassification. CALinnovates, a California-based technology group, had commissioned the NERA White Paper in submitting its comments to the FCC for the then-pending Order.

On 17 March 2015, Dr. Christian Dippon and Jonathan Falk responded to the FCC’s comments on their paper in “The Net Neutrality Order: It’s Worse Than We Thought."
