November 29, 2017 – The Washington Examiner has released a letter to members of Congress and other federal regulators calling on the Federal Communications Commission to make changes to the terms of its cable deployment agreement, which it says would allow cable companies to sell a bundle of streaming-media products to subscribers at significantly lower prices than existing Internet service providers like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
The FCC has been reluctant to extend the terms, which were first announced in a draft of its reclassification proposal to Congress in February 2018.
October 31, 2017– The Associated Press has published a letter from former Federal Communications Commissioner Jon Berners-Lee to President-elect Donald Trump, expressing concerns that the FCC could make changes that would allow ISPs to charge their subscribers an extra monthly fee for their Internet access.
Berners, who served as a senior adviser on the commission from 2013 to 2017, says that “this issue is very much on the minds of the members of the FCC, the people of the United States, and especially those who serve in the media.

It argues that “the only way we will end the FCC’s network neutrality policy is by putting the brakes on the FCC and stopping them from going forward with their proposals.”
September 26, 2017 — New York Magazine has published its own article, titled “Trump’s FCC Cuts Need To Be A New Model,” that argues “any FCC proposal to weaken net neutrality protections, by weakening the rules that ensure broadband providers do not discriminate, must be a model for the rest of the country.
The current FCC proposal would do the opposite.”
