Short Take: Study gives Baby Bells new fodder for regulatory fight

A Washington-based lobbying group, iAdvance, will release a study tomorrow detailing discrepancies in high-speed Internet rollouts between states. The paper is aimed at supporting legislation that would reduce regulation on local phone companies' high-speed Internet businesses. Currently, Bell companies can't carry data traffic across state lines, a restriction they say has hampered their high-speed Internet rollouts.
