Cablevision COO Voices Misgivings on PSTN-like Broadband Regulation

By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, IP Communications Magazines

Hold on to your seats folks! Cablevision Systems Corp. is not keen on the idea of the FCC (News - Alert) regulating broadband as it does the PSTN.

Cablevision's COO Tom Rutledge today reportedly said as much.

While that point would seem to be moot in light of recent rumors that the Federal Communications Commission was going to use a light hand on broadband, new reportsnow indicate that FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski (News - Alert) apparently now has decided to attempt Title II regulation of broadband access services after all.
