So they're telling these lies to law makers trying to get them to vote against it...do the lawmakers just not read what they're voting on?
You wanna know another lie? My ISP is telling me my area and house only gets 6mbps max download. Which is utter bull. My internet spikes sometimes to above 20mbps for sometimes a solid 10 minutes, and then goes back down. So stupid.. I pay for 45.. only getting 6.. smh
>A.B. 375 Will Lead to Pop-Ups
What the fuck. This really was written by a bunch of internet-illiterate old people, wasn't it? Pop-ups haven't been an issue since, like...2004. Literally every browser blocks most/all pop-up windows by default.
These are not the only lies - larger ISPs are doing their best to push through bills in CA right now that do nothing but hurt consumers, especially those in rural communities that are already severely underserved. It's a sham.
For example AB 1665 would add $300 million to the California Advanced Services Fund (CASF) for broadband infrastructure grants, BUT it would change the rules of the program so that AT&T and Frontier Communications go to the head of the line when the money is handed out, as well as allowing them the privilege of blocking independent broadband projects that threaten their rural monopolies.
Assembly bill 1665 started out as a telco-centric bill, and subsequent amendments,have made it even more one-sided – in most areas of the state, it will be impossible for independent broadband projects to qualify for support from the California Advanced Services Fund (CASF).
Two assembly members have taken their names off of the bill. Mark Stone (D – Santa Cruz) and Marc Levine (D – San Rafael) were co-authors, but they both withdrew their support as the gifts to telephone and cable companies became more blatant and local opposition grew in their districts.
The bill as it is currently written:
And condoms cause AIDS and tobacco helps people live longer happier lives.
To be mentioned, don't bother calling the provided link unless you live in California.
Also, the judges, legislators in charge should defer to an adjudicate court more experienced with technology issues.
Just as the Supreme Court, Appeals Court and issues beyond the purview of sitting judges.
For how far we've come we sure have been going nowhere fast the last 10 years.
I don't understand this title. More punctuation and less capital letters needed
The fact that they feel the need to lobby against it shows exactly why it's needed.
