Comments on news posted 2014-03-26 18:45:24: Nearly a decade ago you might recall how we discussed Verizon's effort to nab huge tax breaks and other subsidies from several states for agreeing to deploy broadband to the entire state. ..
this should go to every company that gets money or breaks. build or pay back with fines and interest. now i dont think the gov should build a network but if companies are giving money and the people end up with nothing in return they should take it back. then find someone willing to do the real work.
They should have to build out their network or pay back the subsidies they got. Although if I could get LTE speeds with reasonable caps, I'd be willing to compromise there.
LTE speeds are fast enough for broadband, but the caps are still unreasonable. Their current wireless broadband service, HomeFusion, is $60,$90,$120 for 10GB, 20GB, 30 GB respectively. Those caps probably need to go up at least 5x before I'd say they're really competitive with DSL.
Any agreement with a regulated company is subject to change by the regulators, agreements a telco made in 1992 & 1993 were materially changed by congress with the 1996 telco act. Line sharing of new fiber builds was not excluded as it was in the 1993 agreements. Telco's weren't going to build a fiber network and allow clecs to use at wholesale rates. The FCC in October of 2004 removed line sharing for new builds and now we have FIOS and U-VERSE.
We probably shouldnt mention the huge electromagnetic field surrounding the plant either.
The video mentions the electromagnetic field of earth. It's called Schumann resonance and the earths field of 7.83Hz is used by all life, and we're tuned into it. The problem, if you watched the video, is the microwave and 4G towers are overriding the Schumann resonance, making people and animals die off and get sick. In fact, man-made radiation has increased by millions of times in the last few decades, and has been steadily going up over the course of the last 100 years, resulting in increased illnesses, and species going extinct, and other issues that have driven the world to illness.
If you remove the Schumann resonance from human life, we get extremely sick, and when it's reintroduced people get better and recover. The microwave systems are also causing our brains, cells, and DNA to malfunction, preventing healing from cancer and other illnesses. Watch the well produced video I provided before which covers this.
BTW: Yes, Sun is full of harmful EMF/radiation. If our earth didn't shield us from it, we'd never survive. Now man-made EMF is just as bad as the Suns, and it's basically killing us.
give us billions in freebies and let us make untold BILLIONS more by price gouging on a wireless monopoly at many dollars per metered gigabyte of data..
although, back then nobody conceived how evil these corporations would be to the consumer and governments who now know they screwed EVERYBODY, including the taxpayers out of billions of false promises.
maybe they can reward a cable company with more billions for more fake promises... Comcast also has a bridge to nowhere to sell you...
For what its worth I do think all the extra radio signals and what not affect us, our bodies are composed mainly of water and water is an excellent conductor. Im not going to alter my lifestyle to avoid it (its pretty hard unless i build faraday cage around my house). I do not however think your crazy, Its just something I cant really control (much like inhaling all the car exhaust). I did have a few wireless routers and a femtocell in my old place, and i had tons of plants growing in the house everywhere with no apparent ill effect. SO while i do think it has some effect on us (we are a big electrical conductor afterall) i think sometimes the fears are exaggerated.
If EMF is so dangerous, why haven't cops gotten hip tumors from their 5W VHF radios?
Actually, police forces all over the country are getting rid of their hand-held radar guns due to the operators developing higher than normal rates of lymphatic and testicular cancers. This is the same non-ionizing radiation people have been saying is completely harmless.
Except these big companies Verizon and AT&T took hundreds of millions or billions in taxpayer monies and should be ORDERED to give it back since they did not live up to the agreements they originally agreed to. That is my main point, the fact that these companies have NOT RETURNED THE TAX PAYER'S FUNDS IS THEFT BY DECEPTION PLAIN AND SIMPLE!
This is essentially the same crap that never saw the light of day for Pennsylvania.
quote:A 1994 deal between the state of Pennsylvania and Verizon, a long-standing sore spot for critics of the telco, has apparently ended not with a bang, but with a whimper. Critics charge that Bell Atlantic made billions off of the deal, while offering services they knew would never see the light of day.
resulting in increased illnesses, and species going extinct, and other issues that have driven the world to illness.
Yet life expectancy continues to increase?
More people taking care of themselves and not going to war or getting killed man. And life continues to decrease in all other species, especially ones sensitive to EMF.
Also we don't have life expectancy numbers for hundreds of years ago for perfectly cared for humans to compare it to. Before technology and man-made hazards became a reality. -- www.oregonstatehospital.net - CIA and state of Oregon set me up and targeted me with a microwave weapon, learn more.
