Rule of thumb in times like these tells us that the law will actually do the exact opposite. I'm betting it will allow them to add more hidden fees.
That's cute, it's almost as if they have no idea who the FCC chairman is these days.
New Bill is a cool guy
Like my Comcast Internet bill that's $29.99 a month, but since I have HBO Go streaming in it they get to add their bogus "broadcast TV fee" of $7 after the fact. That makes for a 23% higher bill before taxes, but they get to pretend they're selling me $29.99 Internet service. Conveniently, I've never been able to get 25+ Mbps Internet only service at anywhere near $30 or even $40 a month after taxes in my area.
Worse, they can and have arbitrarily raised this fee multiple times in the past, where in my case it's gone from like $1.50 up to $7. It's a cash cow for them. They can raise it at will without breaking an agreement or contract since they present it as though it's some regulatory fee that's out of their control.
Can we get a bill that requires advertised speeds when greater speeds are available.
For example: If I pay 30 bucks for 30 mbps, I should get 30 most of the time, when I can pay 50 bucks and get 100 Mbps.... If on the 30 dollar plan I only get 10....how the fuck can they get me 50 on the higher plan....it's basically allowing them to make one service crap so they can sell you something more expensive.
