And this is not a "veiled threat"? 

Chairman Powell had the last word however...(he)...warned
amateurs, in essence, not to stand in the way of progress. "But let me
underscore," the Chairman concluded, "the potential for the American
economy is too great, is too enormous, too potentially groundbreaking,
to sit idly by and allow any claim or any possible speculative fear keep
us from continuing to drive this technology and drive America into the
broadband future."

Who appointed this guy?
