Extend network neutrality to device usage neutrality

Pass laws that extend network neutrality to devices using the internet. For example, recently blackberry users were forced to use Microsoft's Bing and could no longer specify a preferred search service. For more details please see

Unlimted Data, means unlimited data through your cellular modem

Cellular and mobile broadband providers should not be able to get away with this. If you advertise a service for "Unlimited" data, that therefore means that they will get as much data as they want, with the best data rate possible. This also means that you will never cap usage daily, weekly, monthly, yearly or for the life of their service. If I have an unlimited plan, a truly unlimited plan, not "unlimited... up to ...more »

No Closed WIFI

Cable and Phone companies around the country are trying to hijack public wifi frequencies for their own profit. As part of net neutrality rules, no public wifi should be closed to the public. There should be no passwords and no "terms and conditions" to utilize what is part of public airwaves. Open standards and open networks are necessary if we are to have innovation, and to have a large swath of public wifi space ...more »

Insist on flat rate bundle pricing and not caps.

If the FCC licenses spectrum it can also dictate terms that will ensure better access and reduce the possibility of anti-competitive practices.

 

No caps and only bundle flat rate pricing should be offered.

SMS and MMS messaging

SMS & MMS messaging is now the most widely used form of communication. Why is it not properly regulated by a commission that is supposed to regulate communication? Have you ever wondered why you do not receive SMS appointment reminders from your doctor? Or why you cannot send an MMS picture of your injury to your doctor’s office? Why do restaurants still use vibrating pagers when everyone has a mobile phone. Ever wonder ...more »

Don't let commercial interests make a grab for WIFI frequencies

WIFI should remain open, especially in public spaces, because it was meant for information infrastructure, not to be used as an income source for cable and phone companies. Cable and phone companies have been preventing municipalities all around the country from putting up big public wifi systems through lobbying. they instead have been putting up their own garden walled wifi networks that require users to be a subscriber ...more »

Mobile Providers

I think we should stop modulating the price of cellular service. For example, stop programing locks on the natural gps ability of cell phones. The locks then make the subscriber pay an extra monthly fee for something that once worked for free.

all devices: open and unlocked. Licensed devices, not licensed providers.

The law used to be in place and it should be restored. There cannot be any jailed and/or locked devices. they must all adhere to all the public protocols any user would like to use. I'm talking to you Apple and AT&T. There should be a vast swath of beachfront bandwidth allocated to free multi-way service. If there were such a swath of bandwidth, then anybody anywhere should be able to add to the national information ...more »
