Re: Adertising practices is the FTC's responsibility

That position could be part of an either/or recommendation. The FCC is absolutely interested in transparency and delivery of the broadband offering.
If they're so concerned with accuracy is speed and connection quality, extending that desire for transparency and truth in advertising to billing only makes sense...Since we're talking about billions in junk charges and lost revenue, it won't happen. Would be too disruptive to the people in charge (If I recall correctly, their names are "AT&T" and "Verizon").

FCC = Facade for Company Control

I bet you are right, they will never do anything to hurt their booty buddies.

While I would like to see unfees tackled, Ms. Clyburn has pleasantly surprised me. So far, she is willing to ask, what up until now, should have been routine questions. If she can spearhead at least getting providers to correct "up-to" and "best effort" advertising while simultaneously disclosing how they manage and shape traffic, that's a damn good start.

Next up? Promoting a competitive infrastructure. (Yeah, right.)
