Because, if companies like Sprint continue to do things like what
Sprint is doing, this will certainly lead to being noticed by
legislators, and the next thing we know we will have federally
regulated peering or backbone network operating. I can see it now,
the Bureau of Peering will be part of the Federal Networking
Committee.

I think you are wrong to the extent that BOP will be under the Department Of Fairness.

the two likely entities in the United States would be either the FCC or DHS.


(DHS you say?) The NCS lives under DHS. I wonder if sprint reported the "outage" to the FCC yet, or what answer you would get from calling the NCS or NCC watch.

Maybe they can bring it up at the November 4th FCC open meeting :

From the tentative agenda :

A Memorandum Opinion and Order addressing the applications filed by Sprint Nextel and
Clearwire for approval of the transfer ofcontrol of licenses, authorizations and leasing
arrangements held by Sprint Nextel and its subsidiaries to New Clearwire.
