Short Take: FCC looks to ease Net congestion

The Associated Press reports that Federal Communications Commission chairman Bill Kennard wants to ease congestion on the Internet by providing incentives and streamlining regulations for companies that provide high-speed connections to homes. Kennard said he would consider a request by Bell Atlantic to stop states from regulating Internet services, which would allow the company to build a high-speed network that reaches from Maine to Virginia.
