The Truth Is In The Middle

I love the cynicism in the San Jose Mercury Newscoverage of the FCC decision that AT&T and Verizon must allow smaller carriers to use their data networks.

It labeled the reactions the two carriers and consumer activist groups as predictable. As expected, the big telecoms said that it was a defeat for consumers and true competition while the consumer activist groups claimed a victory for consumers and competition. If the truth lies somewhere in the middle, consumers have not gained or lost anything, competition remains unchanged and the FCC has succeeded in adjusting the legislative landscape to account for the increasing importance of data.
