Clear specifications detailing the process

Internet Service Providers should be required to release specifications for their network management process. These specifications should be detailed enough that a 3rd party could make a model of the process. Companies that argue producing the specifications would be to costly are lying.

I am reading the NPRM published here: http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-09-93A1.pdf It is supposed to be 200 pages but I only see 107.

Don't tell me 'Unlimited' when you mean 'limited'

Contracts should not be misleading by stating a data-plan or broadband service is 'unlimited' when really the contract provider has some secret idea of when it is OK to start limiting your service, or what services they don't want to work so well due to their personal conflicts of interest.

Ban the use of DOCSIS in throttling user speeds.

The use of the software tool known as DOCSIS needs to be banned. This was partly at the heart of the Comcast issue of 2008, outed in 2007 when it was discovered that Comcast was slowing down a customer's downloading of legal Bittorrent files, such as from major video houses, online. Comcast was sending out fake 'download failed' error messages, and the user being none the wiser initially, closed the download. But he ...more »
