Subject: fcc changed email proccess (fwd)
The FCC has received thousands of letters regarding ISP interconnect charges. They had redone their web page and included more specific instructions for submitting informal comments.
Please visit the site and forward this information accordingly. I have pasted the new proccess here. Your help in making people conform to these new submission rules is appreciated. Ita amazing to see that when they hear from thousands of people and they don't like what they are getting how they chenge the proccess. It is my understanding that they have trashed all the email they got up until this update.
I also received a copy of an email that is being sent to people who have properly submitted their comments. The FCC is just pacifying users to calm the situation. If you read the letter you will understand what I mean.
This is the new submission process: Letter follows: (still waiting)
Parties that wish to file formal comments in these proceedings should follow the procedures set forth in the NPRM and NOI. General information on filing comments with the FCC is also available.
You may also file informal comments electronically via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for the Access Reform NPRM (CC Docket No. 96-262) and email@example.com for the Internet Access & Information Service Provider NOI (CC Docket No. 96-263).
Only one copy of electronically-filed comments must be submitted. You must put the docket number of the proceeding in the subject line, and you also must note in the subject line if an electronic submission is an exact copy of formal comments. You also must include your full name and Postal Service mailing address in your submission.
Subject: FCC Imposed Charges
I am writing you this to inform you of a very important matter currently under review by the FCC. Your local telephone company has filed a proposal with the FCC to impose * per minute charges * for your internet service. They contend that your usage has or will hinder the operation of the telephone network.
It is our belief that internet usage will diminish if users were required to pay additional per minute charges. We also feel that singling out one area may lead to ALL of your phonecalls being charged "by the minute" with future legislation.
The FCC has created an email box for your comments, responses must be received by February 13, 1997. Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them what you think.
Please forward this email to all your friends on the internet so all our voices may be heard.
Thanks for your time.

Good reading that will make you sick:
The Internet Access Providers Alliance
PS: The average ISP has 100 phone lines or more. We pay an average of $2,100 per month for each T-1 line and Local Loop. Also, we pay an average of $38 for each dial-up line. Plus, 55% of you have a 2nd phone line in your house Internet use, paying an average of $15.00 per line.
The Bell phone company already makes ($2,100 + $3,800 + $825.00) -- $6,725.00 per MONTH average off each ISP. There are thousands of ISP's.
Apparently the Bell companies want to triple their income without providing additional value or guarantees. If you WANT to pay -Per Minute- access charges to the Phone Company then do nothing. Otherwise voice your opinion to this email address: email@example.com
