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.

MonteIf for instance you make the character fat, you need to make sure the animation of the character moving his arms and gun around, won't result in them clipping into the character's larger stomach03/06/2015 - 5:22pm
Monte@zippy, I imagine creating customizabel, vastly different body types would add a lot more complexity. Like making sure the character's animation still looks right. It can be done, but it can get complicated03/06/2015 - 5:19pm

prh99I think it probably far easier to add a character than strip a feature from game engine that was baked in from the start.03/06/2015 - 4:45pm
Andrew EisenAs I've said twice already, yes, strides in one area do not absolve anyone from criticism over where else they're falling short.03/06/2015 - 3:04pm
ZippyDSMleeI know I know one thing is not the other. Still worth nagging about.I still do not see why they do not put in body sliders and elt people make thier own body types....I'd do fat/pudgy or chibi befor I do ultra generic prefect body......03/06/2015 - 2:59pm
Andrew EisenAgain, yes, it's dumb that there's no offline mode and that's certainly something worthy of criticism but that does not make any positive moves Blizzard makes any less positive. A bummer that the issue that's more important to you wasn't addressed? Sure.03/06/2015 - 2:46pm
ZippyDSMleeBut...but... but my butthurt!!111 LOL :P03/06/2015 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenLike everyone else, Blizzard isn't perfect but that's no reason not to give it a thumbs up when it does something cool. It also, of course, does not mean it gets a free pass on everything else.03/06/2015 - 2:36pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: More poeple wanted offline mode for D3 on the PC tho.......03/06/2015 - 2:32pm
