Help Us Take the FCC to Court

It’s Time to Take the FCC to Court and We Need Your Help.

John Oliver just helped to bring national attention to Net Neutrality as the FCC wants to reverse those laws. But this is only the tip of a deep iceberg

Here are 5 issues that desperately need addressing:

1)     Local phone customers are paying for the corporate jets and the lawyers to protect the companies. In fact, low income families and seniors have been paying the bulk of services they never received.

The price of all wired services should have been in steep decline and this includes lines that were used for data. The companies have actual cut staff and haven’t upgraded the wires.

2)     The FCC’s recent decision will probably raise business data rates – 20-50%

In fact, the wires are very important for both wired and wireless services. Most of the wires are hidden from view, but they are there under the ground and in the walls. There are wires to the cell sites, the ATM machines, and to the alarm systems; they are all over the place.

3)     In every state, customers paid multiple times for high speed fiber networks that were never constructed and politicians never called them out on it. That’s an average cost of $4000-$7000 per household The total bill is over a $½ trillion dollars. In fact, the entire East Coast that is controlled by Verizon  was never properly upgraded New Jersey was supposed to have 100% completed by 2010 and Pennsylvania by 2015. AT&T was supposed to have 22 states completed 100% with broadband by 2007... never happened.

4) No competition: major price increases and deceptive advertising. Take a typical triple play offer by Time Warner Cable, now Spectrum that was advertised at $89.99 and has now gone over $200 a month in just a year and a half. The only other wired service offering is FiOS and they’re dealing in the same bait and switch practices.
 
5) Advertisers are stalking you and you’re paying for it.  Every time you search the web numerous shadow companies compete to place ads in front of you. On a typical AOL page visit lasting only one minute, the advertisers used up over 40Mb of your data plan, while the page itself uses a fraction of that data. We call this "Whamming".


We are the IRREGULATORS, and we are an independent consortium of telecom analysts, forensic auditors and lawyers and we want to fight for your digital rights.

Why use the courts? Like the harmful immigration law that was stopped by the courts, at this point, there are few options to stop the corporate takeover of the FCC, and the harms to the American public.

Emergency Funds: Our first step is to appeal the FCC’s recent decisions, and that needs to get started immediately as there is a clock for appeals. We can’t go into details as the companies are watching.

What’s in It for You?   Place a bet that the IRREGULATORS can slow down or stop the FCC from implementing bad laws. If we prevail it will lower your rates, make sure there are privacy laws in place when you go online (and they can’t sell info about you) and help to bring high speed broadband (at reasonable rates).
