"We Don't Need The FCC" Under Trump's Presidential Regime

Submitted by: kalron27 3 months ago News & Politics
trump-net-neutrality Trump's top advisor on tech policy matters, Mark Jamison, asks the question, "Do we need the FCC?" While the statement is "for more competition to drive down cost," I have one carrier in my area and Comcast will be happy to take advantage of this and F me in the A along with all of my neighbors. In addition, this will open the door for Comcast to charge Netflix and other services outrageous fees to streaming content, driving up the prices of the consumers of these services. You have no idea what this will do to your pocket book and drive us back to the '90s and over-priced "cable" services. Your internet bill as well as your streaming services will become a commodity for the rich again and only the rich. We will lose our communication with each other regardless of our differences, and that is exactly what they want. We all need Net Neutrality to protect ourselves, this is not about free trade, other 2nd world countries have FREE HIGH SPEED INTERNET that the U.S. has never seen. This can't happen, but we're headed that way.

If the Trump has its way, all media will, satire and news outlets will be under his complete control allowing to censure what he wants. All media will have to adhere to strict guidelines or face legal or financial retribution. The Trump is already proposing legislating laws that severely limit freedom of speech and freedom of the press and is proposing taking away citizenship and or imprisioning violators. The end of cival rights has begun.

If the FCC were to have it's balls ripped off you can say goodbye to net neutrality. That's when shit starts to get really fucked. Becareful what you ask for Conservatives. You may end up regretting it big time.

This guy gets it :) Net Neutrality is important to protecting the consumer, removing it does nothing but allow the commodity to make profit at the consumers as well as the services the consumer needs expense. It will increase cost and raise prices...for a service that is FREE in many lesser nations. The US is long overdo for an internet overhaul, but this is not the direction we want to go.

cable rates and rules are set by THE STATE, not the federal government.  So do not go off the deep end here.  A LOT of the FCC rulings lately have been for politically correct reasons, and that probably gnaws on trump.  Even if the FCC is disbanded, there will still be an agency somewhere charging licensing fees for the airwaves, and during those licensing contracts rules can be established IF they are required for correct business usage.

Well, if there were no public access to information on the internet for a majority of citizens, there would be less spreading of negative press about the president.  This seems like a logical followup to pulling high ranking news officials into his office to tell them to start showing him in a positive light.  When you're a dictator, you have to control information somehow.

Considering that the FCC is currently in the pockets of a few large communications equipment manufacturers, as well as, most likely, a few large communications companies, will anything really change if they go away? I can practically guarantee you that a few fairly recent FCC-mandated "forced "upgrades"" to radio communications equipment were driven primarily by a large equipment manufacturer (does a large, stylized "/\/\" ring any bells?), who then proceeded to thumb their noses at an FCC mandate for equipment "interoperability" for digital-based voice communication systems, when the same manufacturer was one of the ones at the forefront of forcing the interoperability standard through in the first place! I can elaborate quite a bit on this subject, if needed.

Comcast in Michigan is already fucking me in the ass. 1 Terabyte a month limit go over and it is $10 per 50 gigs. It is hard to stay under that. And that is watch videos at 1080p, What happens when I upgrade my TV to 4k. That is 4 times the amount of data to download. So I end up paying for Netflix, and Amazon Prime twice. Just because everyone is dropping cable due to over charging.

Another thing to mention is check their "home business" packages. Up here home business packages are not capped, and they are actually a bit cheaper, and more reliable.

depending on the cost of your service get 2 modems. it might be possible to get 2tb cheaper that way then getting 2b on one modem at 1 internet cost + $200 (that's $10 * (1000GB/50GB)).
