The latest from Dave Burstein

Bell-watcher Dave Burstein's latest newsletter has several interesting items. Among them are news of Comcast's new "DSL-killer" initiative to increase cable modem speeds to 3 Mbps and comments on the credibility and importance of consumer advocate Bruce Kushnick:

" Twice, I found myself on a panel defending telcos against Bruce, unlikely as that may sound to anyone who knows how often I criticize them. Kushnick, a friend, is even more of an iconoclast than I am, and is roundly hated at the Bells. But the FCC, Telephony, and others take [him] very seriously because he is often right on his facts. Unlike most commentators, he has no conflict of interest except an a passion for the rights of consumers."
