In case you haven't heard the latest bit of dirt from Washington, NOVAE recently reported the FCC is considering taxing internet usage. I suppose this is to encourage more students and schools to use it! I sent a copy of my complaint to President Clinton, since obviously the two groups aren't talking to each other. Please foward this info on to anyone you feel may be interested in complaining about the proposed tax. jkc FCC COMPLAINT - CORRECT SUBMISSION FORM _____________________________________________________ I was just informed that the FCC requires us to be exact when writing them about their hearings. Our prior letters were probably deleted. Please write to the FCC and follow these guidelines. 1. You MUST put "CC Docket No. 96-263" in the subject line. 2. You MUST sign your message with your full name AND full mailing address. The FCC address is: ISP@fcc.gov If this is NOT done, comments will be DELETED with no consideration. So please write again following the above guidelines. Send this message to as many users as you can! Or we will get charged by the minute for local phone service. Your prompt attention is very important! All phone companies are after this and are trying to sneak this in...do not sit back and wait it out. Write today!!! Address mail to: ISP@fcc.gov Subject line must say: CC Docket No. 96-263 Body of mail must state your complaint and your full name and mailing address. Cut and paste or edit & personalize the following complaint if it is easier for you: -------- This letter is to protest the proposed additional per minute charges requested by the telephone companies. It is my belief that Internet usage will diminish if users were required to pay additional per minute charges. Your agency is supposed to protect consumers not the telephone company. It could hurt or destroy many small business' as well as children in schools it will hurt all Americans the only beneficiaries would be the telephone companies.
