Regulate price and data caps, unlimited is best to serve all

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 »

Deeply Disappointed

I read on CNN the basics of the new FCC Internet plan, and was deeply disappointed. We need to move beyond the pothole patching. The last mile is still an issue, your hoping systems will have a 1 gig network card, and hope they can get to the library. The problem with Internet access is. 1. Too Expensive. 2. The Last mile is not the answer, cellular and broadband wi-fi is the answer. 3. Too narrowly focused in ...more »

If it ain't broke...

The Internet is already free and open. Not only can you set up a blog or a website for free and share tons of information, you can also decide who provides your internet service. If heavy users crowd out the smaller ones, the network needs expanding, which they will do or they'll lose customers. If a network arbitrarily alters your service, you can switch. If you aren't happy with any network free public WiFi is a reality ...more »

Advertisements use date too!

Advertisements use data too!

 

If the Broadband companies have their way and we all begin to get charged per MB usage, what are we going to do about all the advertisements that load on our pages? All that video, flash, or even text ads add up to a certain amount of data usage. We shouldn't have to use our monthly data allotment to load up some advertisement we never asked to see on our browser.

Free and open Internet

If I were a Medical Doctor performing surgery on a patient with a very rare complicated problem and needed technical advice from another Doctor who happened to live in some small town in Russia, I should not have my request nor should he have his reply to my question held up by my ISP because Bank of America paid more for a priority line to transfer their data on. No corprate entity should ever be given the power to determine ...more »

Throttle for large volume users such as Bit Torrent.

Adopt standard in which per cent IP capacity that is in use fed back to user. Allow a reserve of capacity to remain. Throttle rather than block to maintain that reserve. This would also encourage such use in off peak hours to get highest throughput while ensuring others can still use reserve to for connections without high capacity blocking IP. Throttle to automatically engage for file size greater than X kilobytes. Transmission ...more »

Unlimited Internet - the foundation of growth

Fixed ISPs should not be allowed to charge based on usage, only on speed. Usage based ISPs only hinder internet company growth and technological progress. They create fear in the user that they might "overuse" their internet or do something that may cause their bill to rise. Unlimited internet providers, on the other hand, offer freedom, and the opportunity for capitalism to reign over the net.

Don't regulate the Internet to death.

The existence of the Internet has provided the most open and accessible means of communication, idea sharing and expressive creativity that the world has ever seen. Introducing government regulation with all its bureaucracy and inefficiency would ultimately create more problems than the issues such policy would supposedly address.

Do not regulate the creations of man

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!” -Sam Adams The only FREE internet is an unregulated one. Regulation is domestication of the human mind. Stay free ...more »
