          • When down loading information from the FCC Database using the 'download query tool'

            When down loading information from the FCC Database using the 'download query tool' the information is very difficult to sift through when downloading large amounts of data. Data is compiled into several different tables in the same text file (same sheet when imported into excel) There are no data labels and the information across tables do not match. It would be helpful if there was at least an explanation for this, but more useful would be the ability to match, for example, a tower owner with the long/lat co ordinance across data tables. Also, it would be nice to know…

            • Allow for the public to have access to toll free reverse look up

              Have a website to allow the public to place a toll free number in a phone data cell. Then report to who ever is checking on the entity that is responsible for that toll free number what the name of the entity and address is.

                • Over Charging Prison and Jail Inmates Families / Friends

                  Over Charging Prison and Jail Inmates Families / Friends should be illegal. the FCC has done a great job because for years these companies have been billing thousands of dollars to the innocent families and now it's finally more reasonable BUT, the companies are still robbing them by charging a $6.95 to process their check, credit or debit card payments! there should be no extra fees charged that any other consumer does not pay! Rehabilitation depends on support of good strong family and friends. contact should be made as reasonable as any other person pays for a phone call!

                    • Please make a Do Not Call List for charity calls

                      I receive numerous calls from all sorts of charities, and I wish for those calls to be stopped. If I wish to give to a charity, I made a donation, but these calls are turning me against the charities that are calling so often.
                      Emails from various charities would be much better than the on-going constant calls. I also wonder if some of those calls are from scammers. Please help with this issue and the problems caused by so many different charity solicitations.

                          • Require all online display of "obscene, indecent, or profane" material to require e-mail authentication first.

                            Since wire and radio communications are now often done using the common carrier IP protocol, making these communications to the individual is not an illegal broadcast. Making these "obscene, indecent, or profane" communications to the general public is a crime the FCC must soon begin prosecuting to keep the public safe.

                              • Unused data on wireless cellphone accounts are bought and paid for monthly, thus unused data should carry over and accumulate.

                                Mobile cellphone carriers charge for excess data usage and unused data has been paid for. The FCC needs to protect consumers by requiring the carriers to credit unused data for future use since it has been paid for.

                                  Hello... Fox News 45 in Baltimore purposed edited protesters chants to sound like "kill a cop." The recent New York cop killer was from Baltimore. This falsified news broadcast has endangered both the protestors and the police alike. Please investigate this news agency. They should be held accountable under the law. They are inciting violence, slander and spreading lies to the public. For-profit companies should be held to a higher standard and face hefty fines when it comes to manipulating freedom of speech. Free speech was originally meant for individuals - and not for greedy corporations who profit by deceiving…

                                  • Define Terms Like NetNeutrality Clearly

                                    NetNetrality is a term/phrase for governance, as a utility, telecommunications infrastructure owners & operators (Verizon, ComCast, ATT ...), all of which are known as "Internet Access Providers" (IAPs).

                                    Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are online services providers like retail stores, bank, libraries, science & industrial data sharing, music & movie (iStore, Amazon, Google ...) content/app providers ....

                                    REMEMBER:IAP is about ITU Infrastructure.ISP is about W3C Services.The FCC needs to clearly define for the USA public and politicians what the FCC will and won't govern in the interest of "The People."

                                    IAPs require ITU/IEEE... standards for Open market competition.ISPs require W3C/OASIS standards…

                                      • Better statistics for upload speeds

                                        The FCC’s reports on broadband speed lack data relating to upload speeds. I strongly believe that this data would be beneficial to developers of consumer products that have a server like usage model. As a game developer this data would be beneficial allowing developers to gain a better idea of available upload bandwidth, which has historically been very resource constricted. Limiting the scale of the simulation both in terms of players and networked objects.

                                        • Add THE WEATHER CHANNEL

                                          I believe The Weather Channel should be added to all basic cable line ups. It's important and necessary safety information for the public and no one should have to upgrade and pay more for this information!!
