Telecom petitioned the FCC to throw out rules that let smaller network
operators buy access to bigger companies' networks at lower rates.

By Abrar Al-Heeti

A lobby group representing AT&T, Verizon and other telecommunications
companies wants the government to stop imposing rules that allow
smaller network operators to buy access at lower rates to the networks
of companies currently in control.

In 2005, the Federal Communications Commission killed off several
line-sharing requirements. But incumbent telecommunications companies
still have to make certain copper-based network elements available
through wholesale at regulated prices, Ars Technica reports.
