              • 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?

                • For one thing actually make a rule that helps the public and not the cable or satelite companies.

                  Require cable companies and satellite companies to provide free hd receivers and hdmi cables since you ordered broadcasting in hd only.

                    • 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…

                      • Public listings of yourself and/or your business. ie: yelp, whitepages, google and such. Pay or your listing dies...

                        I listed my small business via YELP, which covered my exposure to the public, accessing several search engines. WELL, this year i cannot afford to renew my listings... SUCKS, but what really SUCKS is that my once listed information has been edited, misused, harrassed daily, diverted to paid advertisers linked and unfair strong arm type business pratices. My email is full of "we can find your listing messages". Sad. Joseph Flynn 727-366-6848 Joint lawsuit ???

                        • 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.

                          • Computer communications software and hardware is not being included in FCC Rule 255

                            Communications software and hardware is not being included under FCC Rule 255 when it is included in the configuration of a Notebook computer. If that is the case then FCC Rule 255 can be circumvented by including wireless phone devices, phone modems and other devices covered by FCC Rule 255 in the configurationn of any computer. That also includes the software programs to operate the individual or network devices. It is a major legal error because most of all of the software and devices covered by FCC Rule 255 can easily be included with any computer configuration. I was told…

                              • Where can I report an individual making physical harm threats to me on a post in Yahoo?

                                Physical threats to an individual should not be tolerated even if its on Yahoo. I also believe that people would think twice of what they are posting if they were required to post their real picture/ live camera screen when posting.

                                    • Is there a rule for Customer Service response times for Wireless carriers!? 55 minutes hold on StraightTalk!

                                      We recently had to wait for more than 55 minutes for a live operator to help us with a port of wireless number from AT&T to Straighttalk (Tracfone Wireless). The question I have is if FCC should require service level agreements for these companies who are grabbing consumers without having the infrstructure and customer support capacity to service them?!
