FCC largely keeps phone rules intact
by w1ld at 12:31 pm EST, Feb 20, 2003

] The FCC commissioners, voting 3-2 with Chairman Michael
] Powell dissenting, agreed to let the states maintain a
] strong role in regulating the Bells.]
] Under current rules, the Bells have to let rivals use
] their local networks at sharp discounts. They also have
] to let rivals "share" their local phone lines to deliver
] high-speed Internet service.]
] The FCC did rule that line-sharing rules will be phased
] out over three years, with the Bells allowed to raise
] prices "incrementally" each year on the portion of copper
] wire used to deliver high-speed Internet. But the agency
] stopped short of the more drastic changes the Bells
] wanted.
