HOORAY! THE FCC FINALLY DOES SOMETHING RIGHT

July 11, 2008

For perhaps the first time in it’s history the Federal Communications Commission has actually made a decision to HELP the public.

The FCC has recommended punishing Comcast Corp. for trying to block internet access to its subscribers. The FCC’s action was meant as a warning shot to other service providers not to set “arbitrary limits on the way consumers can access information on the Internet.”

The FCC said that Comcast was actually violating the law that guarantees customers open access to the Internet. The ruling was designed to stop giant corporations from gouging consumers for their internet usage.
