FCC, Telecom Companies, Open Internet And Public: What's At Stake

The FCC will propose and ask for public feedback on rules designed to protect and promote open broadband pipes to the Internet this morning and you can watch a streaming live video of the meeting.
You are already paying through the noses for abysmal services by carriers and do not let them rip you off, of your money and rights.
Even thought I got mad at Verizon CEO on the subject and wanted to send him to grade school to learn math, he is one of the few that actually wanted to find a common ground.
There are more vicious ones like AT&T asking their employees, even their families and friends to lobby at, to not to regulate Internet! Using such sentences as "halt private investment in broadband infrastructure," threaten "the jobs associated with that investment" and "jeopardize the very goals supported by the Obama administration that every American have access to high-speed Internet services."
It is good to know that AT&T is exploiting it's employees as well.
Cisco, Nokia, Motorola are are opposing open internet, fighting to save a chance to sell products like content filtering to Dumb Pipe CEOs.
