"Firms call for open high-speed Net"

"Firms call for open high-speed Net"

"Leading technology, consumer electronics and entertainment companies -- including, Microsoft and Walt Disney -- have joined together to lobby the Federal Communications Commission to adopt rules preserving the free-flowing nature of the Internet."

These firms want the FCC to use a common regulatory approach to Internet offerings from both telcos and cable TV companies. In particular, they want to ensure cable TV companies don't try to control the content cable modem users get or steer them toward selected cable TV partners offerings.

Article originally appeared in the San Jose Mercury News. The Mercury News is more than just a local newspaper in San Jose; it has excellent coverage of the whole high-tech industry worldwide; think of it as the 'New York Times of high tech'.
