  2. When the

    When the FCC mandates that existing media companies pay fees for a new program and that they do not have to pass those fees onto their customers, does the FCC really think the companies are going to eat those fees and not pass them on to the customers? Show just ONE (1) example of such a case. Therefore, the FCC, in the case of the Lifeline program should have sent the program out to the public for comment since all the media companies have in fact passed those cost onto their customers and we are in fact paying for this…

  3. Instead of the fcc protecting the commercial broadcaster and allowing them to interfere with consumer equipment part 15 an unjust rule

    Community consumer equipment affected cause of commercial transmitter/transmitters causing consumer equipment to not work garage door openers,car alarms telephones corded /cordless, baby monitors,radio,tv, cable interference or last as long as it would in a non rf polluted area. If a consumer is having interference you should protect them instead of saying its a part 15 device this device must not cause harmful interference and must accept interference that would make device not work or malfunction. Instead you protect the broadcaster you know if the consumer didnt listen to the radio or watch the tv there would be no

  6. Change FM broadcasting regulations

    It should not be such a complex procedure to be allowed to broadcast FM radio. I would say that the current policy is unjust. Read more and sign the petition at https://www.change.org/petitions/fcc-stop-requiring-a-license-to-operate-fm-radio-stations . Thank you.

  7. Promote competition in the ISP market

    FCC PROMOTES LOCAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS COMPETITION
    (http://transition.fcc.gov/Bureaus/CommonCarrier/NewsReleases/1999/nrcc9066.html)

    That was the headline! Way back in 1999. Today, in 2014, in Arvada, Colorado (a large, densely populated suburb of Denver), I have exactly one (1) choice for wired Internet service: Comcast.

    Clearly the FCC, affirmed by the courts, at one time recognized that telecommunications services are valuable, if not essential, to 21st century life, that they are a natural monopoly (because we can't very well bury 3 or 4 or 5 sets of cables owned by different companies to every house) and that they require regulation to make competition…

  8. Price transparency is required for all Cable or telephone companies

    Cable companies has a tendency to rip customers off by offering 6 months or 12 months "special discount" price. However, they never tell them what the actual "regular price" would be when the "special discount" period is over. This pricing scheme is open ended. Companies can charge whatever they want. This force the customers to pay over 50% or more than their "speciall discount" price. Of course, customers can terminate the service. Unfortunately, many cities and communities do not have more than one competitors in those services. In this case, Comcast is notoriously using this scheme, and I believe FCC…

  9. Consider the Cornell Law School Regulation room http://regulationroom.org/

    This was used to gather public comment on Airline rulemakings. The results that were published to commenters after the rulemaking suggest that it was effective and helpful to the agency.

  10. Alert Verizon wireless users. Verizon kept money we had in account, claim's account expired

    Alert all Verizon wireless Users
    Verizon claims our prepaid account expired even when we had
    a $74.00 balance and we could not use the phone.

    Verizon claims a prepaid account must renew and that we did not renew on time. What?

    We pay $100.00 once a year just to have an emergency cell phone in out car. We only use this phone for emergencies. We have severe winters where we live and drive in NYS and need it for travel emergencies.

    Verizon did not call or notify us that the account needed more money before they just stopped our service.…

  12. Most public attention and opinions follow news' recap of rulings. Pose the effects of the ruling before it is concrete via social media.

    Once news communicates the effects of a ruling, the true public opinion surfaces and which is later than needed. I love the idea of having the ability to be pro-active in the rulemaking process. Could public opinion or voting be generated by having a simulated ruling? What if... a news story surfaces on news.google.com the "FCC decides to obsolete the TV tuner by allowing Comcast to require set top boxes for all" where the ruling has not occurred yet, but a news story format communicates affected pros and cons. Public would likely cast their opinions and FCC could compile the…

  17. Do not grant a monopoly for Fairbanks local news to one individual--Bill St. Pierre

    Would the people of the city of Fairbanks not be better served if one person did not have a monopoly on local TV news coverage? When did the FCC start granting such monopolies?

  19. Acknowledge, as some states have acknowledged that a lifeline credit 'consumer' are exempted from "FEDERAL SUBSCRIBER LINE CHARGES".

    Consumers with a life line credit are of low or no income. Some states have acknowledged the unfair practices, of providing communications to elderly and disable individuals and have them exempted from the "Federal Subscriber Line Charge". In public rule making, perhaps the FCC should have some feedback on a state level, as to whom will 'benefit' when allowing such charges and whom will the impact hinder. As my life line credit has helped in the passed, but it is has shrunk in it's intended purpose with the approval of ALL the other charges for a standard land line service.

  20. Stop the constant barage of higher education business attaching their services to job related searches.

    Instead of making it my responsibility to constantly renew my do not call registry. Make it the responsibility of the corporations to see if I am already on the list before they make the call. I also despise automated free contest announcements and automatic subscriptions by computer attached to links.
    You want to get to me? Hire a human preferably somebody that speaks domestic Englishwell with clear diction. Make it part of the hiring process.

    I also despise being charged for business calls to me! How can that be legal?

    If you must talk to me you can pay for…
