One silver lining from Bellsouth At&T merger.

As these two telecom giants begin their attempt to swallow the universe whole, there is at least one bit of good news.
Among the conditions offered by AT&T is a promise to observe “network neutrality” principles, an offer of $19.95 per month stand-alone digital subscriber line service and a vow to divest some wireless spectrum.

So network neutrality is safe for the time being. And hooray, we get cheap digital phone lines. For a while.
