The Book of Broken Promises: $400 Billion Broadband Scandal & Free the Net
The IRREGULATORS want you to know the facts:
The Book of Broken Promises is the 3rd book in a trilogy that started in 1998, and presents facts taken from primary sources that directly contradicts the FCC’s biased fake history of broadband in America.
- On April 15th, 2019, the IRREGULATORS filed to appeal an FCC decision and expose one of the largest accounting scandals in American history. Nineteen years ago the FCC, with the help of AT&T, Verizon and CenturyLink, and with a single stroke, was able to manipulate the federal accounting rules to always make the wired utility networks appear unprofitable, and have the state utility customers fund all of the companies’ other services, from the fiber optics for FiOS, or U-verse, to the Wireless to Business Data Services. And in 2018, the FCC decided to continue these rules for 6 more years! The Irregulators are challenging this decision.
- NEW: On May 20th, 2019, the IRREGULATORS filed a series of separate affidavits, as well as a group summary, asking the US Court of Appeals, DC Circuit, to grant us ‘standing’, the right to take the FCC to court.
- NEW: The Case is Going Forward: On June 3rd, 2019, the FCC had the opportunity but did not challenge the IRREGULATORS’ legal right to sue. This is important since it appears to recognize their legal “standing.” This means the case will move on to the “merits” phase’: presentation of briefs and identification of supporting evidence.
- NEW: Filed the Initial Brief: On July 22nd, 2019, the IRREGULATORS filed our initial brief with the DC Court of Appeals against the FCC’s accounting rules.
