Because people around here hate VZW for one sole reason...it's a large capitalist corporation that employs thousands of people, connects millions, and brings in more revenue than the burger flippers and taco stuffers around here could ever dream of having a piece of. Metro hasn't reached the "evil corporation" status yet.

Or it could be that everything there is to say on this topic has already been said several times and by several different people. I know I know .... waaayyy too rational.

Hypocrisy.

What I would really like to know is how a government agency abusing its authority to give itself additional power after both the courts and the Congress have smacked it down and told it 'no' could possibly be less of a threat to our personal liberty than a corporation which has no control over anybody unless they voluntarily choose to cede it by entering into a completely voluntary business transaction.

The FCC is starting to become a rogue agency, and it needs to be reined in if not simply abolished outright.

It's not rogue... the big 'O' knows all about what it's doing. It goes with his agenda - whatever shady **** that is going to be.

I cannot disagree any more with MetroPCS's position on this any more than I do with VZW's. I voiced my concern many times on Phone Scoop's news article as well as voiced my concern to the FCC.

The carriers should not be allowed to sequester publicly owned domains. If they want to regulate their own "proprietary" operating products or services, that is one thing. However, the internet is NOT proprietary or indigenous to one carrier. It is a world wide accessible domain owned by the public for everyone. Why would anyone who uses the internet want to give up this right?

This is carriers simply trying to take what is ours and turn it into cash for themselves.

The infancy stages of the wireless industry, is shining through like a spoil...

Since when is the Internet public domain? It's NOT. You don't own my website, I do. You don't own my servers, I do. You don't own the access that Comcast, Time Warner, and others do, THEY do. You don't own their infrastructure, THEY do.

I'm not exactly sure what your MO is here. You either own one of the said carriers or you have been hired internally within a carrier to monitor these forums to rally for said carriers. You may even hold a massive amount of stock in one of said carriers. While most of your points are intellectual, there seems to be an offset of dictatorship for self-satisfaction.

For almost 50 years, I as well as others have tried to maintain what is left of our freedom. Individuals such as yourself, appear to thrive on control on one direction rather than a balance of power. You don't like government intervention, yet you are willing to sacrifice freedom by shifting control from one side to another. This becomes hypocritical. You completely disregard th...

The people have a right and a duty to regulate the conduct of business. Your narrow, shortsighted, and frankly wrong interpretation of the constitution would exclude anti trust laws, interstate commerce laws and other principles that have been part of the American fabric since the west was settled. And by the way, have you ever heard of an easement? People cannot always do whatever they want with private property.

But wouldn't it be great if the world were really as simple as you make it seem? Actually no, it would be awful.

Indeed. Establishing rules & regulations is part of living in a civilized society. And corporations that run counter to the public good should appreciate this because regulation enforcement surely is better than torches, pitchforks, and violent nationalization.

I guess we got most of it out of our system on the Verizon topic.
