Well it looks like it’s going to be your last chance this week to let the FCC know what we Americans think the Internet “should” continue to be. Money/Corporate voices are apparently are louder than our individual voices, so we all need to collectively yell louder. The FCC comment deadline has been extended until midnight this Friday, July 18, 2014 because of FCC server issues :). In simplest of terms, whether it’s “equal access” (opposed to tiered pricing/packages e.g. TV packages ) and “unthrottled bandwidth” (opposed tiered pricing/packages e.g. wireless plans), I believe we all want Net Neutrality/Open Internet. Make your voice is heard. Send the FCC an email ([email protected]), or submit a comment through the FCC website. Just check out this recent audio recording from Ryan Block co-founder of gdgt of how difficult sometimes it is to even cancel Comcast service. No think how what I can only assume would be the Comcast’s retention department’s mandated procedure to act this obnoxious. Â Now think how “awesome” it would be if this TV/Internet colossus continues to dictate how your Internet “should” be, in the guise of giving us “better” service. Â This this their reasoning as to by they don’t thing being classified as a public utility will prevent them from giving us better service. Ryan was lucky that he even has a choice of high speed providers, most only have one.
