  1. Toano, Virginia

    We have a fantastic 2x weekly local paper, a great online news feed, but the local supervisors recently agreed to yet another 10 year monopoly agreement with Cox Communications. And since Toano is on the edge of the FCC Hampton Roads district - that's the news/weather/traffic we get vs. the more accurate Richmond stations because Cox is unwilling to provide more than the minimum required. It doesn't seem right to be relying on stations from farther away when closer stations are available.

    Has anyone ever heard of a company called Satellite Live TV Stream. They claim that if you download their software(all that is needed) you can watch 3500 hd channels from your lap or desktop and not pay cable bills. I cannot find any thing about them from the bbb in new york.
    Thanks

    We have been told that cell phone numbers will be released to companies and also told that this is false. What is the truth?

    Dear Sirs,

    My name is Ken Swanson. I am a board member of the Shasta County Fire Safe Council. I conduct a CTR (Construction Talk Radio) Show on Internet radio. I held the same format on local radio before the recession. I have found this to be a sustainable way to disseminate information to the general public and offer a platform for all First Responders and officials to use as a resource for disaster awareness. The radio show is a volunteer effort designed to network all entities engaged in preparedness. If we all take advantage of this live open dialog,…

    We have Service Electric Cable TV and Communications as our ONLY internet provider at our business location. First of all how is that possible??? Second, today, the ENTIRE company was shut down due to the funeral of the owner. How is that possible?? What gives them the right to be the only internet provider? How do they get away with closing an entire company?

    BLUE RIDGE COMMUNICATIONS IS MY ONLY OPTION FOR CABLE TELEVISION SERVICE DUE TO PAYING ROYALTY FEES TO THE LOCAL GOVERMENTAL AUTHORITIES FOR HAVING THIS EXCLUSIVITY OF SERVICES. iF I HAD A CHOICE TO AT LEAST BE ABLE TO SHOP FOR SERVICES I KNOW THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO RECEIVE BETTER CABLE AND INTERNET SERVICE FOR A MORE COMPETITIVE PRICE. HOW DID WE GET STUCK WITH THIS ARRANGEMENT?

  10. Bernards Township, NJ

    As a consumer, I am tired of becoming a victim of the battleground between cable TV companies and the owners of various stations. In our area, Cablevision is battling Tribune over paying for rebroadcasting. As a result, large numbers of consumers have had a local station (WPIX) blacked out. I feel that local stations should be on a mandatory broadcast list that cannot be removed from the air. Unfortunately, WPIX is the New York CW network, so we will not be receiving their popular, youth-oriented programming, not to mention their news, sports, etc. This has to stop, cable TV is…

  13. CHICAGO ILLINOIS

    CREATIVE ACCOUNTING ON COMCASTS PART. I have a letter in writing that states my "bundle" should be $114.99. I was being billed $119.99. After spending many hours on the phone with them the situation is not resolved. I am trying to get a different provider but am told that Comcast has a lock on the City of Chicago? Why don't I have the freedom to use a different provider?

    Nothing works with any of these companies for actions of NOT allowing people like myself to get on air and VOICE truth truth which is TRUTH everybody must and needs to know. This needs to change because i believe people that wants to know deserves to know the accurate truth broadcasted globally.

  17. Steele, Mo 63877

    The only local news I receive are Memphis,Tn. stations. I have Dish satellite and have spoken with them and they say it is FCC regulations. I have bought a digital antenna but the Cape Girardeau,Mo. KFVS-12 station is to far to get a reliable signal. Are any other options available?

  18. Bracey, VA

    We are a very rural community that is located on Lake Gaston. We are having major issues with our long distance and wireless calls coming in. Our community is full of locally owned businesses that survive solely through communicating with our customers on the telephone. As a matter of fact, during this time of the year 80% of our business is from telephone calls. Since, Bracey borders the Virginia and North Carolina state line 3/4 of our customers are from North Carolina. We have filed complaints with everyone we know to complain to. Something has got to be done with…

  20. DALLAS, TEXAS

    Dear FCC, I am writing you in response to the upcoming renewal of the broadcasting liscense for 105.3 “The Fan” radio station in Dallas, Texas. I understand that the public is encouraged to voice concerns about the station to the FCC prior to the renewal of their liscense. I am writing to inform you that this station, like many talk radio stations in this country, discriminates against the hiring of young African-American broadcasters.
    Like many talk radio stations, they’ve tried to mask their hiring agenda by only hiring African-Americans that only cary a specific stature such as former athletes or…
