It looks like we are making headway in the Net Neutrality action. More news from that can be found on What was nice was this letter I recieved today:

Dear Mr. McIntyre:

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding
H.R. 5252, the Communications Opportunity, Promotion, and
Enhancement Act (COPE Act). I appreciate hearing from you.

I understand the importance of quick and affordable
broadband service to Georgia's small businesses, homes, and
schools that will enable us to share information in a global market,
enhance our lives through technology, and communicate more
effectively in an ever changing world. As you know, the internet is
a critical communications tool for millions of Americans.

The COPE Act has been introduced before the House of
Representatives to promote the deployment of broadband networks
and services. There is currently no Senate version of this bill. Be
assured that I will continue to support fair market competition, the
protection of consumers, and lower prices in any legislation
regarding broadband that comes before the Senate.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. If you
