Every state is different

In my state phone, gas and lights are public utilities. Cable and Internet are not, and as such they are not regulated by my state PUC. .

Transmission fees are clearly spelled out on lights, gas, and cable bills. Often the transmission fee is greater than usage.

From my perspective my idea of net neutrality would be a fair rate for all, by region, particularly in areas where fiber is in the office and being used by telco to deliver phone and web services the last mile. I pay three times more than residents in cities 50-miles away for a fraction of the speed. I should not be paying $100/mo for 10/1 anywhere.

Re: Every state is different

Regulating it and being the franchise authority are 2 different things. They make take complaints but they do not say how much they can charge nor approve rate hikes.
