Ma Bell in Cable Franchise mess

The Connecticut PUC ruled that U-Verse TV was an information service. A Court ruled it was TV and needed to be franchised like cable. [source and here] Federal Law Takes Precedence Over State's View Of Internet TV Service [source].

My thought is that if you are going to regulate VoIP like dialtone; then TV is TV. Once again, Ma Bell wants it both ways. Regulate them and not us.
