Susan Crawford on the telco mergers

Susan Crawford has an all too accurate post on the ultimate meaning of the mergers between major telephone companies approved yesterday by the FCC:


Today’s mergers signal that the big carriers are now even bigger, and it’s increasingly difficult to imagine real competitors for broadband internet carriers emerging (although I keep hoping — go, BPL!). They’re becoming confident that complete dominion over the internet, complete control, is possible. That’s the big news from today.

I’m adding Susan to my list of regular reads.
