[Comment-Dnso] ISP Constituency DNSO
Dear Directors nad Staff of ICANN,
ASIMELEC is very sad to see that some ISP organizations,
without further consultation, are trying to capture the ISP Constituency of the
ASIMELEC is a trade organisation that represents ISPīs that
cover over 85% of Internet traffic in Spain, (85% of over 2,000,000 users).
Nevertheless, we have not been consulted on the formation of the ISP
Constituency, nor have been allowed to make public comments, nor to enter the
group of funding organisation of the DNSO ISP Constituency, as not documents
have been made public before this time. Please see the comments below to the
proposed ISP Constituency.
*The ISP proposal that has been presented has been secretly
prepared by the organisations that have signed it, without solicitation of
public comments, nor allowing any other organisation to join in.
*They reserve the right to accept other organisations, on
their own judgement.
*The rules for acceoting individual ISPīs are unclear,
(because of language), but we are afraid that they exclude small ISPīs. The
"founding members" are the only judges of what is acceptable.
*The "founding members" give themselves three months to accept
candidates. This allows them time to hold elections to Names Council
representatives before they have to accept anybody.
*Their Chapter says that Associations will
represent................., making it very unclear who might become a NC
*We believe that this candidacy is not prepared to be accepted
by ICANN as it is, and -as there is no time to present new ones- no
candidacy for ISPīs should be accepted by ICANN at this meeting, as there is not
enough time to carry on an open and trasparent process to create a chapter
and a fair ISP Constituency. We prefer to have to have no ISP industry
representation at this time, if this means assuring fair representation in the
