AT&T Re-ignites Instant Messaging War

Ernest_Miller Re:Whip out the chessboard, it's *GAME TIME* (200 comments)

I am referring to AT&Ts recent announcement about sharing access to their high-speed cable system. Previously, AT&T had an exclusive deal with @home, but now will permit Mindspring and other ISPs to negotiate for access beginning in 2002 (when the contract with @home expires). Now, this isn't the best of all worlds...I would prefer goverment designation of AT&T's cable network as a "common carrier", but it is a step in the right direction. Of course, only time will tell. This may simply be a cynical move to forstall government intervention.
