The FCC-AT&T-Verizon-Cable Plan to Screw America — Made Easy.

How to maximize profits of the captured customers — made easy.

Let’s be frank. The companies just want to shake us all down for more money. The plan is to get rid of all regulations or obligations; no more requirements to fix what breaks, no more notifications that they are ‘shutting off’ a customer for a ‘migration’; nothing about upgrading rural areas, just lip service. The FCC is also giving large chunks of the remaining wireless spectrum to AT&T and Verizon, as best as possible. This is tied to dismantling the state wired utilities and handing over the publicly-funded networks to their wireless division for private use. Block all competition by denying access to the networks in multiple ways, is now underway. However, they also get to keep all the state utility benefits, including the rights-of-way and charging all wired customers, competitors, etc. for the wireless build out and the majority of all expenses. Verizon even has a deal with the cable companies to ‘collude’ by allowing them to rent the networks or bundle Verizon Wireless in areas Verizon never upgraded.
