Bellsouth, champion of free market competition.

Blanco's veto of their bill "harms consumers."

The Daily Advertiser - - Lafayette, LA:
"BellSouth Louisiana President Bill Oliver said his company will try again next year to pass the legislation, which he said would speed the delivery of fiber optic broadband services, particularly in rural areas.

'I am extremely disappointed,' Oliver said. 'I felt we had legislation that provided Louisiana consumers a choice of cable TV providers and protected them from rate increases unchecked by competition. History has proven that competition drives prices down and improves services.'"

Yep. We all know how much Bellsouth loves competition and the free market.
