Hearing #1 On Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century - Sept. 13-14 at Georgetown University Law Center
I think we have seen exactly what the Internet Service Providers will do without adequate and fair federal governmental oversight: the slowing of online communications for firefighters in the latest California wildfires. I guess firefighter unions don't pay enough kickback to Verizon. Commissioners, I am sure you are aware that 85 -90% of Americans favor the re-institution of net neutrality regulations, this from a BIPARTISAN poll. Republicans favor in the same numbers as Democrats and Independents. As a citizen, I encourage you use your oversight power to enforce net neutrality rules and regulations to make access to the internet fair and equal for all.
