So up until 3 months ago, these supposed protections didn't apply to anyone.
The protections still apply to dial up. When this whole internet thing started all of the client connections were done over phone lines, which are subject to Title II. Then when broadband started, all of the ISP kept behaving under Title II rules (which makes a lot of sense). Then last year (maybe two years ago) Comcast was able to somehow win the argument that broadband shouldn't be considered Title II. So a few month ago the FCC carried over this Title II feature to cover broadband as well.
