Author: JT Smith

Reuters: "A Texas Internet provider on Thursday charged AOL Time Warner with
locking out independent providers from its high-speed network, an act that could violate an
agreement with the U.S. government.

In a complaint filed with the Federal Communications Commission, Austin-based Internet service
provider Texas.net said AOL Time Warner had refused to negotiate terms of access to its
high-speed cable-modem network, while at the same time forging agreements
with large, national providers."
