    Hey FCC -- maybe you should spend less time jet-setting with billionaire politico media moguls, and more time working on things that might actually benefit consumers. What exactly has this FCC done so far that is of any value?

    New York has quite a lot of good high speed Internet, from many providers. How about coming to our small city of Laramie, Wyoming, where we face unique challenges due to long distances and high backbone bandwidth costs?
