The rules oblige Internet service providers, or ISPs, to enable access of all content and applications, regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.

And while ISPs claim that the FTC is well suited to jump in and police any potential abuses, legal experts have argued that's largely nonsense, since the FTC's authority over ISPs is severely constrained. Pai doesn't explain what will happen if they don't follow through, other than saying that the "problematic conduct" will be "corrected".
