    An earlier poster asked to be able to read the 323 pages of the bill.

    Is there anything wrong with posting the bill, letting the citizens read it, before voting it in?
    One more time. It's not a Bill. It's not a law. It's a ruling by the FCC that Broadband now applies to an already established law that has been on the books for many years.

    You can not increase speed without increasing price

    You can if you are already overcharging.
    BT increased my speed without a price increase, went from a 40Mb connection to 80Mb connection without an increase in price, in fact it actually costs me 2 less

    Based on my location i have always go very close to maximum speeds too.

    In my mind, you vote it in before people can read it because someone doesn't want the people to know what will result from the bill.

    What if you went into buy a car and the dealer said "Sign here" and wouldn't let you read what you're about to sign?
    Would you sign it or would you want to read it first?

    I don't know about you, but I don't think it's paranoid to want to be informed of what the bill is before it becomes law.
    We votied with our 4 million comments we sent to the FCC before they set the rules in stone.

    Okay....
    It's a ruling....
    A ruling made by the FCC on a law from 1934...
    And the citizens of the US still have not read the 'ruling's 323 pages.
    A ruling made, even though there are obviously a lot of people who either didn't want this ruling or at least wanted to understand what it said and how it could affect the people, who theoretically are the ones, who the FCC work for.

    The problem with that is most people won't read it and most of them who would wouldn't understand it.

    Where is the 323 page you are talking about? I read another article(Sorry, no link) saying the FCC ruling is only 8 pages long not 323 pages.

    There is no way that a complex ruling will only take up 8 pages. That's a summary not the details.

    It's sure not that way in the u.s. that I've ever seen happen,
    Personally dsl is as fast as u-verse which is still dsl with a different modem but allot more expensive,
    If at&t had it's way I'd be paying 180.u.s a month instead of 102.60 for t.v. and internet.
    Then you get into the cell silliness which a meager 200mb was like 80.us
    I can't even talk to Comcast but they are about the same 180.00.

    We can speculate 'til the cows come home but no one will really know what is going to come out of this until either we see that elusive document (and maybe not even then) or something actually happens. The ISPs are going to raise a ruction through the courts so the legality of the FCC's actions will be tested.
