FCC to change DSL rules

The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that the Federal Communications Commission could vote at its meeting on Thursday to change rules that require DSL providers to share their infrastructure with ISPs. This would mean that the phone companies who own the copper lines that DSL service runs over could boot ISPs like EarthLink off their networks. A change in the DSL rules would make them similar to ones imposed on cable providers, which are not required to share their infrastructure with competitors.
