The National Cable and Telecommunications Association has told the Federal Communications Commission: "If there is to be [Internet] regulation, ... it must apply equally to all providers." The point? Plenty of colleges and universities have "network management" strategies too. The trade group has sent a carefully crafted list of stated policies to the FCC -- "virtually all of the nation's top universities... restrict users' ability to engage in activities that cause excessive congestion." From the document it looks like NCTA staff grabbed U.S. News and World Report's ranking of top colleges, rummaged around the schools' IT Web sites, then selectively cut-and-pasted their stated computing policies in the FCC filing.
