    Yea ok.. you tell yourself that...as I will laugh...needless to say youre a wealth of misinformantion...FORBES knows a little about this subject..you sadly do not... like most libs.. just sheep to the slaughter


    Net Neutrality Is Setting The Stage For Internet Taxes - Forbes

    snip...
    Public utilities are taxed at a higher rate than other property taxes

    By reclassifying Internet services as common carrier telecommunications services, states that tax the tangible property and equipment of public utilities and regulated telecommunications services can now tax the property of broadband service providers. Public utilities are taxed at a much higher rate than other property taxes, which means that broadband costs and prices will increase with states never having to pursue the more challenging course of securing legislative change. In addition, if states consider “intangible” property as taxable, wireless providers may also see the value of their spectrum taxed, which is worth well over a hundred billion dollars, and at higher property tax rates on utility and regulated telecommunications services, compared to other business property.

    Another major risk is that state and local governments will not discern what portion of a broadband provider’s plant and equipment is solely used for Internet connectivity. They might simply designate all of the firm’s property as “mixed use” and subject it to the full taxation as regulated telecommunications property. Therefore, broadband providers that provide video services, information services and other lines of business (such as applications and cloud computing services) could have their tangible and intangible property for other lines of businesses taxed at higher rates and under a broader base, exposing the entire business to these higher costs.


    snip....


    so Cruz was right...and I am also..

    Yeah. Thats it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Travis, why are you afraid of letting these fools who claimed that we'd see higher taxes come forward and tell us where they see the taxes in these rules? Why haven't fools like Ted Cruz jumped all over these rules to show us where the taxes are? We know the answer, don't we?

    Three posting in a row boils down to, "they might tax it someday."

    Just what do you think "for now we do forbear" means?
    Let me clue you in, classifying it as they did still opens it up to be taxed. Or did that skip your attention?

    As increasing Government involvement is what occurred, Obamacare for the internet is pretty much a relative comparison.

    Again, what did you not understand about "for now we do forbear"?

    It proves that classifying it as a Class II Utility opened it up for those fees to be assessed, exactly as we were informed.
    And proves your above statement to be baseless in that regard. Or in other words, a direct and deliberate lie.
    guys, even if it does happen, the current federal tax on wireless is 5.82%. The average internet bill is around $40 I think. We are discussing $28/year.

    This is really a big concern even if it did happen?
