New Networks

Immediate Threat:
The New “Digital Dead Zones” & Removing Your Rights to Communicate:
Deny the AT&T FCC Petition NOW.


It’s a simple question:  Which future do you want?  If you chose New Networks,





New Networks

Shut off customers.

Everyone has the right to service—You can’t be shut off.

Slow down/stop upgrades.

Everyone gets upgraded to fiber -- including you.

Don’t have the money to upgrade America.

They already charged you over $3,000 for a fiber optic upgrade you never got.

Push customers onto expensive wireless.

Wireless competes against wired for your business. You are not forced to change.

All networks closed to direct competitors.

You have a choice which internet, phone broadband and cable provider you use.

Continuous price increases.

Competitors fight for your business to lower prices.

No oversight, company writes contract.

You have the right to take them to court and get refunds for overcharging.

No quality of service.

They pay penalties and refunds for crappy service.

No Net Neutrality.

They can’t touch, block or examine your bits (data, emails, etc) or calls!


AT&T, Verizon and Centurylink, who are corporate sponsors of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), have declared WAR on the American public. They have created a new plan to establish new digital “dead zones” and remove a consumer’s rights to communicate. (Of course they don’t claim that will happen.)


AT&T has filed a petition to start this process, while AT&T et al with ALEC have been going state-to-state to remove all regulations – and laws have been changed in 23 states – and counting. New Networks filed to have the FCC not only deny AT&T’s requests to start investigations.


Here’s what’s going to happen:


§       You live in a small town and one day you wake up and your phone service no longer works – Tough.

§       You’re a small business and you’re fax machine or DSL goes dead – Too bad.

§       You want to get upgraded to broadband that can handle video? – Sorry.

§       You live in a city and they tell you they’re not fixing your line – Go away.

§       You want to watch a movie or TV show on a mobile device like a tablet, you’ll get hit new charges called “bandwidth caps” i.e., you went over your limit or your paying through the nose; that’s because the companies who offer wireless services also own the wire lines that connect the cell towers as well.

§       Your bill keeps going up because there’s no competition or hidden fees in the form of taxes, fees and surcharges are mysteriously added – Shucks.

§       Your right to complain to a public official is being removed as well “regulatory” oversight.

§       And cable? There’s no competition from the phone companies so prices continue to rise, and this leaves the cable companies free to not offer a la carte packages, or choice of a competitor’s set-top box with cool new features and they, too, put on bandwidth caps to stop outside video services. – And it will get worse.


But it gets worse: The telecom companies are tightening their grip, eroding your rights:


§       Verizon sued the FCC to end Net Neutrality, thus enabling it to block, degrade or inspect a customer’s calls or data.

§       The Supreme Court approved AT&T’s policy of prohibiting customers from pursuing class action suits a wireless company; it is now attempting to do this with other services.


If you still want what the phone companies and ALEC are offering – good luck with that.


For everyone else who wants a future of jobs, economic growth and oh yes – companies that actually want to compete for your services and want America to have broadband, internet for everyone – at reasonable rates --
