For AFICA or may be for my country ETHIOPIA ,World access is very important.
Google News has recently removed hundreds if not thousands of News publishers from their index, which has caused the loss of thousands of jobs, at a time when America needs them most. According to the chatter on the Google News Publishers forum, Google is making an effort to remove unwanted content, this effort has also caused several smaller News sites who provided real news to be removed from the index. The loss of ...more »
This week, Comcast indicated that it will try to charge Netflix a special fee, just to let people stream HD movies from them. That's because they feel netflix will compete with comcast's own video on demand service. This is EXACTLY why we need net neutrality. Comcast for one, shouldn't be allowed to control ANYTHING regarding content, and they shouldn't be in the content business AND the cable laying business at the ...more »
Internet Use make the world very small
internet should remain free. its like the air we breath in todays world. Puting a price on top of it after payin a service provider is down right wrong. its like putting a tax on top of a tax. We are already burdened enough. plus with the economy the way it is would make it even harder for a lot of people to find jobs if they are not working. Now it is easy to find jobs through the internet ,put a charge on that and you ...more »
Many years ago cable companies ralied the cry that they should be deregulated so that everyone could afford cable - laudible - credible, hardly. The cable industry knows a cash-cow when it sees one, and we need to keep the internet free and unincumbered, otherwise, we'll be paying an arm and a leg for what we now enjoy for a song.
I want the Internet to be completely free from ISP, Corporation and Government control. I also want high speed Internet to be easily available to all Americans.
Net neutrality is a perfect situation which will not be achievable. Sorry but there is no utopian ideal solution. The internet is like a lot of roadways and you have to allow authorities like the FCC and internet service providers to perform throttling, limits on total bandwidth use and modifications based upon access and ability to pay for excessive speeds so that the net can conduct its business reliably for the most ...more »
I hope you realize that if you intend to use a scale model for internet access, many people that work for local cable companies will lose the job they have for many people wont want a fast modem that does surf the net freely.
I am no expert, but, I believe that the majority of the country has "so-so" or crappy credit scores. Why not design an incentive program geared towards promoting traffic and driver safety by improving their credit scores over time. For example, every six months if a driver goes without an accident or ticket, raise their credit score 10 points. It's no secret that America is a revolving melting pot of debt and bad credit ...more »
The FCC must reclassify broadband as a "telecommunications service" so that it can keep the Internet open and free of corporate gatekeepers. Without vital Net Neutrality protections and the ability to enforce them, the Internet will cease to be a public platform for free speech, equal opportunity, economic growth and innovation. Instead, companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast, which have a commercial incentive to limit ...more »
I want Open Internet Rules. I think that if I want to send an online message to a friend it should not be blocked, that if I want to create a new website my broadband provider should not relegate my content to a slow lane unless I pay a premium, and that if I want to access a cool new online service it should not be degraded by my broadband provider. I don't think these aspects of the Open Internet are undesirable and ...more »
Should regulate price, create lower cost, larger cap, plan restrictions, an unlimited plan was not out of the question a year ago and it should still be an option. Help us educate our children. Newspapers are a thing of the past now and internet is used for most communications and information including this one. I believe we need to look at price for data delivered especially since stimulus is paying for end of line and ...more »
The FCC must ensure the net stays neutral. They must also ensure that ISP's can not block content or charge more for it. Equal access for all!
Though it may be necessary for ISP's to throttle network traffic, the way in which they do so should be transparent. The rules of the road should be free and public, and if our bandwidth is being restricted we should be able to find out why, easily and painlessly.
