Broadband leaders put up their dukes

The broadband battles heat up as Time Warner takes on MediaOne, while Road Runner remains precariously on the ropes.

The broadband battles have only just begun. Comcast's $60 billion deal to buy MediaOne has run into a potential stumbling block, as Time Warner claims it holds veto power over the merger.
