Short Take: Cable lobbyist resists broadband regulation

Internet service providers shouldn't be able to force their way into cable broadband networks, chief industry lobbyist Robert Sachs wrote to Congress on Monday. His letters come as the Federal Communications Commission considers whether it should extend telephone open access regulations to cable. Sachs also said a recent General Accounting Office study failed to note that cable was built with private capital, while phone networks "were largely built and funded in an era of guaranteed rates of return."
