        Where are they on Special access fees? Only AT&T and Verizon can control the rates that they charge for facilities that were broken up by the FCC in the 70-80s. Wasn't access to be the same and regulated under tariffs? That was how it was originally set for competition. But that was prior to lobbying having such an impact to the FCC.

        FCC is sleeping with Comcast because all of the FCC reps (except one lady that represents the people's best interest) have connections to Comcast. These loosers need to be Fired and replaced with people who are not tied to any company who don't pull this kind of BS on the people. Enough is enough. We also need to make a law that allows we the people to hold each back stabbing individual who holds a public position to be held completely accountable to the American people. We have to hold them Each Accountable in order to prevent further abuses to our system. Please pass this idea on to your congressmen if you agree.

        So that's how the cable industry got the set top box requirement pushed through. The idea that less service calls [also a job killer] by cable techs will save energy loses all credibility when you take into account the millions of extra set top boxes [most not energy star rated] that will be plugged in and running permanently. Yes, it will allow the cable company to save money, make a lot more money and cost the consumer, especially those with multiple tv's a small fortune. Great job FCC. We know who's bed you're in.

        A former cable company lobbyist regulating the cable industry is like having a dingo for a babysitter.
