Internet and phone calls are limited commodity, that is why its usage
is being rationed and priced.

Century-Link just run out of bits to transfer!

How does the socialist FCC dares to intervene in perfectly functioning
markets. What are they hoping to find out investigating shortages of
bits - bad harvests or international conspiracy?! Isn't FCC suppose to
be in .gov shutdown mode?

Happy New Year to everyone ...
