FCC: Kill Net Neutrality, Block Cities and States from Telecom, Privatize Publicly Funded Utility Networks, and Give Billions to the Telcos with 5G Gifts

  • Chart 1: FCC is Wrong: Verizon’s Fiber Optic FiOS Networks Are “Title II”.
  • Chart 2: Verizon’s Entire FiOS Deployment Is Based on Title II Fiber Optic Networks.
  • Chart 3: The FTTP Wires Are Title II and part of the State Telecommunications Utility.
  • Chart 4: Customers Paid Rate Increases for these Fiber Optic Deployments, Multiple Times.
  • Chart 5: Local Phone Customers Paid the Majority of the Construction Expenses.
  • Chart 6: The Verizon New York 2019 Annual Report Shows Massive Cross-Subsidies Impacting Every FCC Proceeding.
  • Chart 7: Wireline Networks Subsidized the Wireless Networks — as Title II.
  • The Restoring Internet Freedom Order Remand — (is really Kill Net Neutrality)
  • Modernizing Unbundling and Resale Requirements — (is to privatize the publicly funded wires and block competitors from using them)
  • Establishing a 5G Fund for Rural America — (Gives government gifts based on questionable maps so the telcos can buildout inferior wireless networks instead of examining that many areas in America should have already been wired. Worse, wireless requires a fiber optic wire to work. The old adage is “There is no wireless without wireline infrastructure”.)
  • Streamlining State and Local Approval of Certain Wireless Structure Modifications — (means constraining rights of way management rights of cities, towns, counties and states to question wireless build out of their infrastructure and fixtures; as well as the time these government entities have to examine the issue based on a shortened ‘shotclock’.)

Almost every state in America is still relying on these rules; New York is the only state we know of that makes the state telecommunications utility annual reports public.
