From reading that, though, it looks like the ISP in question also
has its own telephone product (after all, the quote in the article is
that they are a "North Carolina service provider that calls itself
the '17th largest phone company' in the US"
In which case, the fine may stem from the anti-competitive nature of
blocking their competitor rather than simply because they were
blocking some sort random service.
In other words, what juice would the FCC have against MomNPopISP.com
who decided to block VoIP?

We (or its just me) might be curious about which ISP did that.
Offlist if you want.

I'm working on a graduate policy paper regarding Internet
filtering by blocking ASN's or IP prefixes. It is a variation
of Net Neutrality, just by a different name.
Except Network Neutrality is about QoS, not filtering.
