Consumer Groups Launch Line-Sharing Fight

DSL Reports: The Consumers Union and Consumer Federation of America will release a study tomorrow claiming "broad public support" for opening up broadband networks to competitors, reports Broadcasting & Cable. The FCC in August freed telcos from mandatory line-sharing by classifying DSL as an "information service." Democratic Commissioner Michael Copps, who voted for the classification change, will join the consumer groups at a press-junket tomorrow.
