IRREGULATORS: We Freed the States

2020: WE WANT OUR NETWORKS BACK!

Our Background

The IRREGULATORS  is an independent consortium of senior telecom experts, analysts, forensic auditors, and lawyers who are former staffers from the FCC, state advocate and Attorneys General Office,  as well as telecom auditors and consultants. Members of the group have been working together, in different configurations, since 1999.

IRREGULATORS FREED THE STATES

We Got the Decision We Wanted; The States are now independent and we are working to bring new municipality and state actions over the next 2 months.

 

  • IRREGULATORS Treasure Map: Billions for broadband in your state and refunds on your communications bills.

  • The Cities and States can now go after hundreds of millions/billions of dollars per state from the companies that control America’s critical public wired state-based telecommunications utilities--AT&T, Verizon and Centurylink and the other phone, cable, ISPs, and broadband providers.

  • These funds can now be freed to solve the Digital Divide, lower prices and bring in competition.

  • Stop the Wireline-Wireless Cross Subsidies. The wireless networks require fiber optic wires to their cell sites and over the last decade they have been able to divert billions of dollars from the state’s wireline construction budgets and charge the wired networks and phone customers for wireless. 

  • Separate the Wireline Utility from the Wireless & Other Subsidiaries. As a country we must examine how AT&T and Verizon have been able to have the state wired utility act as a cash machine at the detriment of the States and Cities.

  • STAY TUNED FOR MORE. 

 This is one of the largest accounting scandals in American history. America is being overcharged $50-60 billion dollars by AT&T, Verizon and Centurylink, not to mention the cable companies, annually, and this means that the price of all communications services-- wireless, wireline, internet, broadband, phone  or cable services have been inflated -- costing you, your family, and business hundreds to thousands of dollars extra a year. Worse, most of America was never properly upgraded to fiber optic services to the home, which caused the Digital Divide. And all of those taxes, fees and surcharges are made-up.  Worse, because only a few companies have taken control of the networks, and there is no serious competition, this caused not only caused privacy and Net Neutrality issues; America is paying 2-10 times more for services than are being offered overseas. 

 

Way too complicated to explain, the short answer is: Over the last 2 decades,  AT&T and Verizon, with the help of the FCC, were able to manipulate the FCC accounting formulas which make the entire wired networks appear unprofitable.  This not only lets them inflate prices and claim it is too expenses to build out the networks, but there's a secret -- this was all done as a bait-and-switch to charge local phone customers to build the wireless networks and then force customers onto 5G wireless --because it makes them more money.

 

It took us almost a decade to figure out this  financial shell game. If we win, then there are billions of dollars per state that should be used by cities and states for a fiber optic future. 5G Wireless has been subsidized, and it is not profitable when

we fix this shell game.
