Short Take: AOP refutes email message

The Association of Online Professionals, a trade group representing ISPs, said a message distributed on the Internet claiming ISPs were due refunds from local phone companies is inaccurate. The email message indicated that ISPs incorrectly had been charged access charges on their dial-up data lines and as a result may be due thousands of dollars in refunds from local telcos. The AOP said the email message was based on an incorrect interpretation of federal regulations.
