Adam Thierer made a sketch of what the Telecom Act of 2006 should look like. Here's my favorite part:

Immediate Freedom or Continued Regulatory Forbearance for…
* cable (just leave them alone; they are the model here for where we need to go)
* wireless (ditto, but consider expanding auctions and determine unlicensed set-asides)
* high-speed broadband networks (formally firewall it off from traditional telco regs)
* VoIP (same as above + consider limiting state and local tax powers)
