NCTA President Kyle McSlarrow was quoted offering the opinion that the FCC's network neutrality plan will ultimately be accepted.

"My instinct is that this item will be adopted," said McSlarrow, as quoted by The Washington Post. "And as I have tried to make clear, while we support rough consensus we developed over negotiations over six months, I think we have to be careful of material changes."

The article notes that FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has been conducting closed-door meetings with cable and telco interests, trying to forge an agreement on the adoption of principles aimed at insuring an open and thriving broadband industry.

The Washington Post article notes that the other two Democratic commissioners are cautiously supportive. The Republican commissioners far less so.
