I don't know which part of the market you're talking about, but historically the FCC was the main reason that the telecommunications market in the US wasn't free. Read Tim Wu's book The Master Switch to understand how the FCC was originally used as the tool of the Bell system and RCA to enforce unnecessary regulations in restraint of trade. It's still going on but maybe this push is a chink of light.
