Alcatel ships Linux USB ADSL driver

Author: JT Smith

The Register has a story about USB ADSL modem maker Alcatel shipping a Linux driver.
"However, the company seems to have misunderstood just what the phrase 'open
source' actually means.

Alcatel's driver allows Linux fans to use the company's USB-based SpeedTouch
ADSL modem. In the UK, BT Ignite bundles that modem with the home ADSL
offering it sells through a variety of telcos, including BT's own broadband operation,
BT Openworld."
