. Freedom to access content. Consumers should have access to their
choice of legal content.
. Freedom to use applications. Consumers should be able to run

. Freedom to attach personal devices. Consumers should be permitted to
attach any devices they choose to the connection in their homes.
. Freedom to obtain service plan information. Consumers should receive
meaningful information regarding their service plans.

infrastructure for rich corporations who will then extract the cost of
this redundant buildout from their customers."
