12. Chairman Wheeler seemed to think was not going to be a problem in February.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said he plans on a do-over for Net neutrality rules.

On Wednesday, the chairman laid out a plan for preserving the Open Internet after a federal appeals court struck down the rules last month.

As part of this new strategy, Wheeler said the FCC will not ask the federal appeals court to re-examine its decision in which the rules were thrown out. Instead, the agency will write brand-new rules using a different legal basis that was affirmed by the court's decision.
