So there are these oposing ads that the cables companies and the phone companies are running talking about legislation in congress that's going to mess up the way we get access to phone, tv, and internet.

The legislation is called :
Communications, Consumers' Choice, and Broadband Deployment Act of 2006
The 'official' mind numbing piece of legislation is at: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:S.+2686:

From what little I could TOLERATE reading it looks like it will hurt companies like Vonage. The fact that both the sponsors are not mainlanders is bothersome. I'm sure ANC will be the first to say not everything that works in AK (or HI) works for the whole country.

Is this more bloat legislation from the Salmonator (Ted Stevens)?
Does anybody have plain language insight on this from un-biased sources?

From the Alaska Politics thread . . . . which is in no way related to Ted Stevens and this thread . . . .

Salmonator - pretty damn funny Ted . . . bet you wish any one of your Florida Legislators had balls like Uncle Ted.

I'm surprised ANC hasn't gotten in on this one: Communications, Consumers' Choice, & Broadband.... (by TedTAce Jun 1 2006 in Non Aviation)

Just give me the Cliffs Notes TedT . . .

In short, does it affect me, how, and what will it cost me in terms of $$$.

If the answer is no, not at all and no $$$ then I don't really give a shit.

Here's another update on the bill: http://today.reuters.com/news/newsAr...RNET-NEUTRALITY.xml&archived=False

I'm stunned more people on this board aren't paying attention as it will have some affect on the way we communicate.
