FCC PROPOSES ACCESS CHARGES FOR PRIVATE NETWORKS

By CBR Staff Writer

The US Federal Communications Commission, already under concerted fire over its proposal that data networks should pay access charges to connect to local telephone networks – a move that would hit hobbyists hard, is certain to draw even more fire with a proposal that big companies that have set up their own leased line private networks should also pay access charges. US private networks are estimated to carry the equivalent of $1,000m of traffic annually, and charges could be as high as $5 an hour per user.
