  2. Start by ceasing the gross misconduct

    I am absolutely furious after reading about Meredith Baker approving the Comcast/NBC merger and then accepting a lobbying job with the newly merged Comcast/NBC. This reeks of misconduct and a failure to protect us in any way.

  3. Fight against Verizon overcharge

    Verizon is the evilest company I have ever dealt with. Over the years when I was Verizon customer, I had been overcharged many times. Recently I was using the Verizon triple play. At first,I Signed on the price as the advertised on TV. But when the time for installation, I was told that I did not have any other with Verizon, although I was even given a "confirmation number"!Then I had to signed with Verizon again with higher price because I need service. But When I got my first bill 2 weeks later. It was a shock! It charged me…

  4. Establish a page for web neutrality issues.

    Not that the issue is getting some press, you'll be seeing a lot of traffic.

  6. Verizon's monthly fee for tethering smart phone.

    Why do I have to pay an extra monthly fee to tether my Verizon phone to my laptop when I am paying for unlimited internet? Does it really matter how I use the unlimited internet. Thats like getting DSL service and paying an extra fee to connect each computer in the house!!! I do not think this is fair at all.

  7. The FCC is not well known. Let the public see what happens at FCC via these social networks!

    Be priod of what you do...show everybody the people, projects, and work the FCC does. It'll improve the agency's image, let folks see the 'real' side of the agency, and give the public a better idea of how to interact with the Commission.

  8. Public Comments to Proposed Regulation Changes

    The current public comment process is often too confusing and cumbersome for much of the public. Social networks offer a mechanism for process that is open to a larger public, beyond those who have the time and resources to respond.

  9. Breaking up the Comcast aquisition of NBC/Universal

    Even though it has already went through, I felt it was a major mistake of the FCC to allow this aquisition to fall through. It has absolutely NO positive effects to consumers and creates an even bigger monopoloy having a major stake in multiple forms of media. I'm really sick of the government not protecting citizens from growing monopolies.

    A thought that the government should have when coming across this is not just what the negative effects of it are but what are the positive effects. If there are no positive effects, then there is no point in pushing it…

  13. LEAVE THE INTERNET AS IS!

    All this talk about the new Net Neutrality deal. There is nothing wrong with access to the Internet. Why on Earth would all of you even consider this deal with THE BIG COMPANIES? You will crush the little guys and you know it. How is this working for the people of the USA? Tomorrow is a big day for all of us and online freedom. Keep that in mind.

  14. Net neutrality is about as accurate as 'the fairness doctrine"

    There was no problem with the internet as it was, so I see no reason for more bureaucracy. The new bill is no more than a power grab to ensure that government has control over the net unlike they do on cable networks. My idea is for the American people to see a breakdown of expenses for the FCC, then let US say, we don't want this or we don't want that. Gov't always tries to fix what isn't broken. What is broken is the power we the people have to restrain what we feel we do not need, like…

  16. All commissioners and Julius get on Twitter. Tell us who you're meeting with, why, outcomes, etc..

    By letting the public know who you are meeting with and when you have open meetings, we'll feel better that you are accountable to all sides of the issues and considering everything. If you only meet with the large businesses and not the small businesses and consumers, we'll see you're not accountable to everyone. We want to trust you're making decisions based on a lot of information. Be accountable to us and show that we can trust you because you consider all sides of a subject.

  17. Why are we only talking about broadband? We should be focusing more attention on mobile

    Mobile is where the most innovation is taking place. It is much more cost efficient than broadband alone. I agree everyone should have access to high speed bandwidth, but more than ever this should be focused on the mobile platform.

    In order to help bridge the digital divide we need to be looking at how to provide better more reliable and cost efficient mobile service to people. The cost of a mobile device is much less than a laptop. It is portable and serivce is cheaper than trying to pay for a land line, cable TV and broadband.

    By only…

  18. FCC should model "best behaviors" for emerging media efforts.

    It is desirable to have a diverse environment of content providers. The FCC should highlight best practices of media entrepreneurship, from how to start a blog to how to launch a cable channel, and everything in between.

    For example, PEG is available nationally, yet when you Google the topic there are virtually no articles on how to use this community resource. By illustrating how PEG Access works, the FCC democratizes access to all media distribution.

  19. A huge change needed in tv channel selections to consumer/set # as price code picks no unwntd chnls

    Comcast/Verizon will not let you select just News Channels, just Sports, no Spanish, just Spanish, you get what they want not what you want. I don't purchase clothes all sizes. I want what I want! Selective Channel Blocking not enough!

  20. DTV, not such a great idea.

    I'm not sure who decided to get rid of analog TV and go to this crappy excuse for TV that we have now. Clearly they do not live in an area that has bad weather. We try to watch the weather to protect ourselves and property from storms but DTV can not be watched during a storm because it ALWAYS cuts out. How exactly does our wonderful government expect citizens to be aware of where a storm is traveling when you can't see the TV? Real genius idea........
