Tell Lawmakers: "Stop discrimination. Defend net neutrality."

  1. I got the calls back to me, but each person said they could not hear me and hung up, sending to next office and again person answered and said they could not hear me.
    Hopefully, I'm the only one that happens to.

  2. Unbelievable!!! You need to get your facts straight. Net neutrality basically equates to government controlled media. This will turn the United State's flow of information into something resembling North Korea. Furthermore, your link says the opposite. Uninformed people will just blindly sign a petition and those add up. Net neutrality was concocted by liberals who were upset at talk radio, which leans right. Never mind the fact that mainstream media overwhelmingly leans left. Liberals are trying to control every facet of American life. Do you really want to hand them the power to control what information we see and hear? I sure don't!

  3. Steve, if you're going to make a bold statement such as this you should back up your views or at least explain how you came to such a conclusion. Otherwise it comes across as paranoid hyperbole.

  4. There are three or more big internet providers that would love to control what I can see, read and hear on the net. If they don't like it they will slow it down or block me from seeing it. Net neutrality will keep them from doing just that. So, Steve, how is that government controlled media? And you say "mainstream media overwhelmingly leans left". I say that's hogwash!

  5. @Steve - Where have you been in the recent years when this issue has been discussed everywhere. Net neutrality is about making sure no one like ComCast, Verizon or other carriers control the internet... you know like it's been since the invention of the net.

  6. Thanks for everyones support on this issue. Reports are that call to Congress has been averaging 1000 calls per minute. FCC reports that there have been more comments today than on any other rule making activity in history.

  7. @David - You are right. We need more competition. But it seems a little late for that with companies like Comcast and Time Warner. This effort is very small and focused compared to a goal of more competition. It's about stopping a stupid FCC rule that would allow companies like Comcast to charge Netfix so that Netflix customers get good service. Today (9/10) we may be able to stop this stupid FCC rule... then let's set up the internet so that companies like Comcast can't control it. Probably making it so there's more competition is a great way to do that. So how do you make it happen?

  8. Where I live, I have a choice of Century Link, which is basically DSL, it slow and out of service 30% of the time and Comcast which is much faster and down or slow maybe 5% of the time. As for customer service, Comcast is the pits, on a scale of 1 to 5, I rate it at a -00000. They do not care one bit about their customers because it's a near monopoly!

  9. I'm sorry, I meant Steve O'Dea, granted, it's a political issue that probably should be discussed on another board.

  10. @Robin- All we are asking is to leave the internet as it is and has been from the beginning, free for all to use without corporations controlling how we use it. Steve is the one who turned it political.
