The People Speak

July 17, 2017; Blog Post

A slew of recent polls make clear that most Americans, nearly 80%, support keeping the network neutrality rules that are the foundation of an open internet. These are the rules passed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2015, under the leadership of then-chairman Tom Wheeler, that keep the big Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon from determining your internet experience, because they’d rather do that themselves than let you do it. Net neutrality rules prohibit blocking or throttling content. And they keep ISPs from favoring their affiliates, corporate friends, and those who can afford sky-high broadband prices with fast lanes on the net, while the rest of us are told to travel in the slow lane.

FCC Nominee Jessica Rosenworcel Should be Confirmed with Dispatch

June 14, 2017

Few people have ever walked through the doors of the Federal Communications Commission with as much knowledge, experience, and good judgement as Jessica Rosenworcel. I know from personal experience that she is among the most capable ever to hold the title of Commissioner, and her return to the Commission could not come at a more propitious time. With the Open Internet, media localism, and diversity all under threat, the public interest has never needed a public interest servant of her caliber so acutely. I urge Congress to confirm her with dispatch.

Report: Bid Cable's Lobbying Victories-2

October 10, 2006

A report to explore how de-regulation of Cable companies hurts individual families. It reads, in part, 'And while telephone and cable companies may be competing for high-end customers with packages that include high-speed Internet and digital cable, companies are not offering these special deals to every customer. In 2006, alone, for example, Comcast, the country's largest cable operator, hiked by 6 percent the price it charges for its standard cable package.'

Katrina's failures ought to push Congress to make sure that they are never repeated. Congress can ensure that emergency responders have the access to the public airwaves they need in order to communicate with one another and quickly receive crucial data for saving lives. Congress can also take the steps to open up the airwaves - a public resource - to community networks that will help all of us gain access to high speed Internet, regardless of our income level, race, or locality.
