Page 7 -14 looks to be pretty important. Specifcially:

NO BLOCKING:
A person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service,
insofar as such person is so engaged, shall not block lawful content,
applications, services, or nonharmful devices, subject to reasonable
network management.

NO THROTTLING:
A person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service,
insofar as such person is so engaged, shall not impair or degrade lawful
Internet traffic on the basis of Internet content, application, or service,
or use of a non-harmful device, subject to reasonable network management.

NO PAID PRIORITIZATION:
A person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service,
insofar as such person is so engaged, shall not engage in paid
prioritization.

There is also an interesting bit on gatekeeping:
Any person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service,
insofar as such person is so engaged, shall not unreasonably interfere with
or unreasonably disadvantage (i) end users’ ability to select, access, and
use broadband Internet access service or the lawful Internet content,
applications, services, or devices of their choice, or (ii) edge providers’
ability to make lawful content, applications, services, or devices
available to end users. Reasonable network management shall not be
considered a violation of this rule.

I think there are going to be a lot of complex implications of this
announcement (canidate for most obvious statement aware winner!).
