Short Take: FCC wants firms to ease Net congestion

The FCC is looking for ways to get firms to offer more high-speed Internet connections to home users as a way to lessen Net congestion, the Associated Press reported. A plan had not yet been devised, but FCC chairman William Kennard said he wants to remove regulations to lighten companies' burden. The Baby Bells, for example, have complained that regulations keep them from developing high-speed networks in their regions, the AP said.
