dear artsednetters,
i sent a note to the fcc expressing my unhappiness with the possibility of
an extra per minute charge for internet use and this was the response i
received. thought that you all would be interested...

This is an automated response to the message you sent to isp We
established this mailbox for informal comments about usage of the public
switched telephone network by Internet access and information service
providers for a proceeding on this matter in 1997.

If you are responding to a message stating that local phone companies have
asked the FCC for permission to impose per-minute charges for Internet
access, please be aware that this information is out of date. The FCC
decided in May 1997 NOT to allow imposition of interstate access charges on
Internet service providers. There is no comment period currently open in
this proceeding.

More information on Access Charges and the ISP proceeding is available at
