Even with the threat of Congress going its own way, "the FCC acting as soon as possible is our best opportunity to get rules back," said Lewis, with Public Knowledge.

Sloan questioned any attempts at a compromise, saying some broadband providers don't want any regulation. Regulations based on Section 706 wouldn't likely support rules against Web content discrimination, she said.

Broadband providers "keep changing their story," she said. "Now they say Section 706 might be OK. It's not a compromise, it would be a total capitulation to their side. The bottom line is they don't want any open Internet regulations with teeth in them."
