ATT Keeps the Internet Free

Posted by rexdixon on December 29, 2006

For another 48 months. At first I was happy to read that ATT and Bell South were going to finally settle in to merge. The FCC seemed happy, and ATT seemed to have made enough concessions. Even the writers over at TechDirt seemed happy, as well as everyone else that has followed this merger.

Well this morning, it appears that the TechDirt people did a little digging. It looks like the concessions that were made are really nothing more then fluff on top of your latte. In other words, it isn’t much at all.

The intriguing thing is that I was chatting with my bud over in NYC yesterday and it appears that Verizon is all FIBER where he lives (on LI). He was telling me that it ROCKS, that HD TV has such a sharp picture, the internet speed is lightning fast.

Technically Speaking, the FCC should have never let one of them merge after the big 1970’s break up. I think they should have just remained individual companies. Competition is what sparks innovation. Since I live in the middle of nowhere, it will be another 5-10 years before we see FIBER offered here!
