Don't think so!

The actual Report & Order has to be published in the
Federal Register which usually doesn't happen for
between 2 and 4 weeks.  Then there is a 15 day period
in which petitions for reconsideration can be filed. 
The new regulations will not take effect until 30 days
after the Report & Order is published in the Federal
Register.  This means at least 6 weeks and maybe more
before the new regulations can take effect.

As for those who have passed written examinations and
have CSCEs that are less than 365 days old I believe
that they will have to return to a VE session and pay
$14 to get the paperwork to upgrade filed.  The only
"automatic" upgrade will be to those Technician Class
licensees who have not passed Element 1.  They will
have limited privileges on the low end of 80, 40, 15,
and 10 meters plus SSB ONLY in the 28.3 MHz to 28.5
MHz range.

It is effective immediately.
Tech's get Tech+ privileges.
Anyone who passes the General Written Elements (or who
has it passed and was working on Morse) now has
General privileges.
