“Growing up in Texas, a work ethic was imprinted on all of us. Texans get things done. We taught the world to drill oil, helped explore outer space and the oceans.
We are all proud of this heritage.” A concern of mine is that already, 19 states have passed laws to protect the dominant carriers in this country, limiting competition, preserving high prices and continuing a practice of bad service. This is counterproductive to you and me and further stymies delivery of quality internet we deserve; services which could be provided from prospective competitors wishing to enter the market. These states’ politicians have been bought off by lobbyists with fat checkbooks. Google Gigabit won’t be showing up in those states. Any other carrier, either. Be vigilant. Your state may be next.

APPEAL to FCC Chairman Wheeler to stop the madness,” says Bobby Vassallo.
