I can't believe the FCC has the power to fine companies or restrict their business practices, but the FDA has no power to do anything. Our communication is apparently more important than our food and drugs.

The Telcos aren't complying because they don't care. There's no money to be made in CPNI, just like there's no money to be made in upgrading the aging networks they run on. I don't think anyone ever mistook a Telco's actions as being considerate of their customers satisfaction and security.

Telcos are the modern railroad companies. They own the infrastructure, and they'll decide how to use it. The FCC can do whatever they want, companies like Verizon, ATT, etc... just don't care.

LOL a 20,000 fine is a joke to a business, its not even their janitor's yearly salary. Why both to upgrade their systems when they can turn off the lights in their buildings an hour earlier and save the same amount of money?

It pisses me off so much when the government attempts to punish companies, but they never seem to outweigh the benefit of breaking a regulation.
