Short Take: ISPs oppose Baby Bells DSL plan

A coalition of long distance companies and ISPs has petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to reject a request by Baby Bell companies, GTE, and several major computer companies to take a hands-off approach toward the Baby Bells' broadband DSL services. The proposal would violate federal law by allowing the Baby Bells to avoid selling their DSL service at wholesale rates to competitors, the coalition said.
