Re: Data collection rules need upgrading; but 2/1 for BB doesn't

said by FFH:

Obviously the cable companies are backing this because they feel they get an advantage over the telcos and wireless companies in the advertising game, if they can say that their service is broadband and the others aren't.
I've got no problem with that. Survival of the fittest. It is possible to run 1mb up on DSL to all but the extreme fringe. I don't give a rat's behind whether a cableco, a telco or a powerco gets it here.

But now all of the whiners out there complaining about telcos manipulating and purchasing legislation to gain the upper-hand will have to change their tune towards the cablecos if a law of this nature passes.

It sounds like you're saying telco's don't manipulate and purchase legislation? Do you seriously think that?

No, I said that all of the people whining about telcos will be able to do the same for cablecos without prejudice.
