    Oops, it was broken there for a minute. All fixed.

  • Dave Rusin says:

    It’s a great fairy tale … $15 billion to fix what most experts stake out at $200 billion+ …

    .. how about trying this, put a sunset clause on loops and Special Access, private capital will then enter the market if there is certainty they can make a profit. As profits are made, more entrants follow by private funded sources … Economics 101 … the government needs to get out of the communications business and let markets sort the wheat from the chaff.

    CA 1996 has created what we have — let’s not prolong the agony and government subsidy of something that can be readily be handled by private investment.

    More focus on wardrobe malfunctions and Digital Rights Management would be more helpful.

  • RF says:

    FCC to spend billions to fix an access issue for 7% of the population. Talk about leveling the playing field in a very socialistic way..

  • Dave Rusin says:

    I would really like to know who the “Fantastic” voters are? If any are public, I would short their stock.

    Mr. Rusin is in rare form, as usual. I love his outspokenness, however, I wonder if his company was able to be shorted because it was public like those “Fantastic” CEO voters who cast their ballots above, if he would lay it on the line like he did. He seems like a straight up guy who runs his business very efficiently, so, he might well! Mr. Buffett teaches, “take care of the business, and the stock price will take care of itself.” The implication being no worries when the business is going good as a result of dedicated management teams acting prudently and providing its underlying owners with favorable results. I wonder if certain telecom CEO’s who have been attacked over the years, sometimes even without good cause via illegal, nefarious methods, might disagree on this point. Here’s to that bold upstate New Yorker, Dave Rusin, though! 🙂
