Re: Gov't FTTH

What Competition ?
Why are your Accounts Capped ?
Why are we seeing "Throttling" ?
Why are we charged a thousand times over per Gig of Extra Data we download ?

No the FCC is a joke.And our Government will not truly set things straight.They are all on the take and they all gladly take the Telcos Money.
FRAK YOU WASHINGTON !

FCC is not a joke, it's what you make it. The GOP has driven every and any government agency into the ground.

Why do you think there is significantly more competition in other big gov countries that were supposed to fail 50 years ago? Why do you think there are uniform wireless spectrum bands and cell phones cannot be locked down to one network? How about 5 to 10 broadband providers and wireless companies to choose from? Because they have consumer protection bodies like the one the GOP has killed and their government actually looks out for their citizens - 'We the People'.

Heck, why do you think GMO food is banned or must be indicated on the label in most other developed countries? Same deal with the pink slime used in our ground beef, where they do not even inform us of this.

No government means corporations and the few get to call the shots and that is indeed the America the Republicans want and envision.

The FCC has NO control over the Internet time to move on.

Yes the FCC is a joke. It was created to protect the wireless spectrum for radio networks. NOT for phone services, nor for TV/Media and surely not for the Internet.

The FCC needs to go back to doing what it was created to do so and stay out o the business that it does NOT have any control over.

I think it is time for you to do a little review and learn yourself before you continue spouting off and looking like a fool.

So you are implying that everyone should be able to broadcast on any frequency..

Do you have any idea about how wireless work???

Aside from unhelpful and erroneous partisan bashing. Do you have any suggestions for the party in power?

Regarding those countries that were supposed to fail ... Greece, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Iceland??

Have you noted the economic stagnation in Japan? How about repression in China? Did you recently check the Canadian forums ISP reviews?

Did Denmarks or Spains windmill problems elude your notice? What black solid fossil fuel is Germany relying on for new power plants?

We have problems here, but much of our planet isn't doing much better.

Ah yes, the knee-jerk cherry-picking of countries. I was thinking more along the lines of France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Canada, Netherlands, Belgium, Australia etc.

No partisan bashing at all, it's simply rehashing where the parties stand on these issues. The GOP would rather spend $750 Billion every year on defense than invest a single $1 on infrastructure, America, or Americans.

Actually, it's widely know outside Faux news that the reason Japan stagnated was because they pursued decade long austerity measures; similar to what is proposed by the GOP. Therefore, much like Greece, rather than growing they simply stagnated.

Just in case you have not noticed but the #2 economy in the world is now communist China. Have you seen the infrastructure in China? It makes a complete mockery out of every single Red State combined. Heck, find me one airport in America that comes even close to Beijing International.

The rest is just nonsense considering the sheer number of nations RWers label Big Government that have lower unemployment rates, lower deficits, a high quality of life, 1000 times newer and better infrastructure, and (on topic) 100MB/s broadband connections versus our 3MB DSL.

You also did not explain how it is that Big Government nations can have 5 to 10 broadband providers, whereas the majority of Americans typically have 1. 3MB DSL is not broadband, it's a joke.

In fact, the biggest government / high taxing nation of them all
has the second fastest speeds and once again, RWer rhetoric loses.

Then again why am I even talking with anyone who is a RWer about tech. The majority of innovation and tech mecca of America comes from the uber liberal San Fran area.

I thought "spouting off and looking like a fool" was the primary job for shills. As such, he's doing an excellent job so far.
