Article in today's Wall Street Journal:

"WASHINGTON -- Federal regulators are considering whether the government
should take greater control of the Internet and ask consumers to pay higher
phone charges in order to provide all Americans with cheaper access to
broadband Internet service.

The Federal Communications Commission Wednesday will lay out the case for
expanding broadband Internet service, outlining current obstacles to making
it widely available. The agency is considering whether to force Internet
providers to share their networks with rivals and raise fees charged on
consumer phone bills to pay for the broader access."
