Gamblers Get High Speed Options
By staff
A federal court overruled a FCC regulation that allowed cable companies a monopoly over high-speed Internet provision over cable TV lines. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that high speed internet was a telecommunications service and was thus governed under the same legislation that initiated the breakup of the Bell Telephone monopoly.

This ruling, if upheld on appeal, would mean that consumers would have a choice of high-speed Internet providers using their cable lines. The increased competition would drive down broadband prices and increase service options for millions of users across America.

Gamblers might have the option to pick taylor-made broadband packages including closed loop packages that would bring online casino gambling within their state’s jurisdictional control, rather than leaving it as an item on the Federal agenda.
