Time Warner Applauds FCC Decision on 'Rural Telco Interconnection'

May 27, 2011 -

Time Warner Cable issued a short statement today praising a recent "declaratory ruling" on a petition submitted by the cable operator to the agency related to rural telco interconnection. The ruling basically says that local telephone companies must work with telecommunications companies to enable interconnection between networks, and traffic exchanges. The company went on to say that it has been trying to enter into rural communities in Maine - unsuccessfully - for the last three years.

Time Warner's short statement below:

Press Statement Regarding the FCC’s Declaratory Ruling on Time Warner Cable’s Petition Relating to Rural Telco Interconnection

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Time Warner Cable applauds the FCC’s decision reaffirming that competitive telecommunications carriers have the right to interconnect their networks and exchange traffic with all local telephone companies, including in rural areas. Time Warner Cable and its wholesale provider, CRC Communications, have been seeking to enter several rural communities in Maine for the past three years but have been thwarted by incumbent providers’ flat refusal to enter into interconnection agreements. This ruling will help eliminate entry barriers and promote increased voice competition and broadband deployment not only in Maine, but in rural areas throughout the country.

Gee, if only this worked both ways, and that the big telecoms were forced to open up their networks to competition.

Well, they ARE forced to.. it is just broadband providers that have managed to weasle out of the requirement.

Don't you mean Cable/telecom companies? Some local telecom companies also provide broadband for their service areas, or are upgrading their networks to do so.

To which I must call bulls*!t. They didn't WANT to extend their services past city limits in most places, said the revenue wouldn't justify the expense or some such crap. Now that some local telephone companies are offering their own digital TV services, NOW they wanna piece of the pie.

Sleaker@EZK - one of the bigger things is that since Mojang has owned Bukkit for 2 years now, people contributing to the project have basically been doing work for them pro-bono. On top of never formalizing support. They hid the fact probably to prevent support08/21/2014 - 9:07am
SleakerIf you've played on a server with mods/plugins, you've almost for sure played on a Bukkit-based server.08/21/2014 - 8:56am

SleakerTo the point that it seems they have completely lost what it means to be for-community, and having transparency. Along with dumping restrictive EULA's onto people.08/21/2014 - 8:53am

SleakerMinecraft community exploded again today. Apparently Mojang owns all of Bukkit, and never put out a statement saying as such 2 years ago when they acquired them. I have to say, their transition from indie has been rough.08/21/2014 - 8:52am
