US government deregulates DSL

Robert writes "Computer Business Review is reporting that the US Federal Communications Commission on
Friday ruled to reclassify DSL broadband service in the US as an "information
service" rather than a "telecommunication service," freeing phone companies
from regulations that force them to share infrastructure with third-party Internet service
providers. "The changes will enable wire line broadband Internet access providers to
respond quickly to consumer demand with efficient, innovative services and spur more
vigorous head-to-head competition
with broadband services provided over other platforms," said the FCC
."
