      require...... that's cute.

      But fraudulent billion would be fine, if the government wasn't giving these companies money to help build their businesses. That way atleast if someone ripped us off we could just goto the next guy. They need to eliminate contracts unless absolutely required for buisness. To many of contracts these days are open ended(to where the company your agreeing with reserves the right to change what you agree to at any minute).. it's ridiculous.

        Also, correct me if i'm wrong but FCC can only regulate network television right? not cable TV? and channels that are "luxury" and people are not required to subscribe to? I thought they only had the authority to regulate tv stations such as Fox, NBC, ABC and other networks that receive government funding.

        And going to digital i'm pretty sure they gave up even more of their powers by giving up what little leverage they had.

        long post short, you should be petitioning the networks not the FCC.

        And to many parents rely on the FCC as a safety net so they think that they don't have to watch shows with their kids. And some could argue there's a difference between nudity and sexuality... one should be censored the other shouldn't.

        What may be right for you might not be right for some.

        Ever think to limit your children exposure to television.... problem solved. But to many parents use it as a way to keep their children quiet while they watch their adult tv shows or what ever it is they want to do other than interact with their children.There are already so many optional things in place but adults are to lazy to use them. Maybe they just need more paid channels like HBO for kids only with no commercials.

        I agree with H. Lewis' comment that if you really want to protect your children get rid of the tv. This is something not many adults will do with out.

          Amen, this is the most important thing to consider.... That being said it works pretty good with things like electricity. But then again aren't prices and such regulated. I'm sure people will say "but the free market is what America is about not government regulation"... Fine but don't give money to people to be a monopoly in an area and not ask them for something in return.

          Sattelite internet is awful why in the world the goverment would give them a dime is beyond me. And why they think that giving someone 10 gigs a month when EVERYTHING ,can, run on the internet these days(tvs, coffee pots, lights, front door locks...............)

          It might work for now but to encourage this type of trend of pay per use is just going to kill the industrial advancements. The limits to the internet are not even begun to be tapped into we need to think 10 years from now, if satellites cant provide as good a product as wired internet STOP INVESTING IN IT!

          Seriously,i have satellite tv and the majority of the "perks" that come with it you need high-speed internet. So even they know how important it is ...They just want to continue to advertise stuff to get people into a contract for stuff they cant even use.(which is another issue about unfair business practices they use to get customers into lengthy terms that can be change by the provider at any time....even the length of the contract they can change WTF!!!!!?)

          oh and it's drizzling out(not even that hard)............... so... gotta wait another hour or so before i can post this. Cant wait till emergency services and telephones are all over the internet.. and it rains and people die because the government went for the cheap solution vs the reliable solution............ it's a shame society is planning technology around the future when were not ready for it.

          But like the OP i just wish i had a choice....my only choice really is satellite......... and there's 3-4 choices... but when you do your homework they are all thru the same providers they just offer different names so if someone talks bad about one people will still choose them under a different name.

              Oh, and it's kind of ironic youre telling them to do the very thing that's causing you to have less than stellar performance.

              Agreed with below, sometimes it's not your ISP that's at fault but the companies your recieving data from that are throttling what they send to you. Which is why it's going to be next to impossible for there every to be a requirement that you HAVE to get speeds advertised. Yes, companies take advantage of this and use it as a cop out so they don't have to provide the best of the best. But that's life. A lot of times major companies like youtube sneak in google analytics and other tracking scripts that are taking up a lot of your bandwidth which is why your videos are taking so long to load.
