bpc123 writes: "WASHINGTON — The Federal Trade Commission's Internet Access Task Force yesterday issued its report on broadband competition policy. Entitled "Broadband Connectivity Competition Policy," it follows the agency's two-day public workshop in February 2007 on broadband competition issues.

policy makers should be particularly hesitant to enact new regulation in this area."
