Thanks for the opportunity to express my thoughts on
the internet's future.
I hope that the ideas presented will be considered seriously.
I believe the internet should be treated and operated
like a Public utility
such as the electric, Water or Gas company. I oppose
any Large corporate
control of the internet such as the control that the
large Telecom companies
would like to impose by getting Laws that prevent Network
Neutrality to be
passed into law.
The internet should be a freely provided, unregulated,
and open to all
without restriction. Our Taxes Paid for the original
Darpa Project that
became the internet, So the internet has already been
paid for. I see no
reason for Corporations to claim they are entitled to
any special priviledge
over the average comsumer.
Currently the United States is far behind in providing
Broadband to all it's
population. I think the first priority should be to provide
broadband internet to everyone. Our country is quickly
losing the edge
technologically to the countries that we have ported
our jobs and
educational resources to.
We must regain the technological superiority or I fear
we will ultimately
fail as a nation. Implementing the ideas I have proposed
would be a larg
step forward in meeting this goal.
