As the Federal Communications Commission moves toward its new Open Internet rules, there are concerns about the impact of a single broadband provider on the public interest.
Here are five ways to stop this new era of corporate monopoly.
End unlimited data usage and caps.
We’re going to get our broadband data caps to zero and unlimited data plans will be legal.
Limit the amount of data you can use for streaming.
We want more streaming options, and we want more choice.
Reduce caps on paid prioritization.
There’s a lot of talk about the need to reduce data caps for everyone, but there are also concerns that caps are too low.
We have to get more people online.
End data caps on TV.
It’s hard to overstate the importance of getting more people in front of their TVs.
But what we need is to make TV more affordable and accessible.
Stop throttling and throttling inbound data speeds.
We are hearing that some providers are slowing down data speeds on their network in order to attract new subscribers.
We need to change this behavior and make it a net good.
