FCC Chairman Powell Makes Enlightened Comments at Supercomm
ISPworld.com is carrying an article summarizing FCC Chairman Michael Powell's comments at Supercomm, an industry trade show. Chairman Powell's remarks point to a keen understanding of the issues facing the industry, both from the RBOC and the ILEC perspective.

Chairman Powell's comments imply that he is looking at the situation in a similar way.
