WARNING: 30+ FCC Actions in One Year to Slice & Dice States’ Rights & Consumer Protections.

  • Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment WC Docket №17–84
  • Accelerating Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment; WT Docket №17–79;
  • Get rid of all competitors: There is a petition by the wireline phone association, USTelecom, to remove the rights of competitors to ‘interconnect’ and use the networks.
  • Weed Whacking: The FCC has been getting rid of all of the cost accounting rules and regulations — and any leftover rules.
  • Net Neutrality constraints have been removed so that one company can control all services over the wire, including the Internet and broadband, but also wireless, and favor their own affiliates, etc.
  • Privacy challenges continue so that that the phone, wireless, cable or internet company can track you, advertise to you, and sell your data.
