The signatures on the letter reads like a who's who of ISP industry presidents and CEOs, including AT&T's Randall Stephenson, Cox Communications' Patrick Esser, NCTA president (and former FCC commissioner) Michael Powell, Verizon's Lowell McAdam, and Comcast's Brian Roberts.

Case closed, we all know they know what's best for us, right?

As someone who, over the past 20 years, has designed outside plant for literally every single major ISP in the country, his ideas are hilarious. It's like a plumber watching House M.D. & then telling a neurosurgeon that he could do it better. "They can just upgrade the poles!" "They can just bury everything they can't put on a pole!" "Who care about that gas line & power cable!"

Congress created the FCC in 1934 to "regulate interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable". If they had the political will, they could disband it just as easily. They could also revisit the FCCs charter periodically to make sure that it's keeping up with technological progress. Instead, they'd rather hold 50+ votes on repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Exactly what kind of mental acrobatics does it take to state that the Federal Communications Commission has no authority over a public communications system that was developed by DARPA & paid for via federal tax breaks & subsidies?

"Robert McDowell, a Republican commissioner of the FCC, called the net neutrality proposal a "threat to Internet freedom" in an opinion piece published in The Wall Street Journal. He argues that consumer protection, which net neutrality advocates say is lacking, is adequate, and government intervention into the Internet is misguided."

Freedom to gouge consumers is still a freedom I guess.

Just remember, people with cancer who complained about how Obamacare was hurting them and their treatments were FOUND OUT TO BE dirty filthy liars and then were audited by the IRS.

Fixed that for you, you fucking AC shill.
