Actually, I signed up for the free FT subscription to read the article, it is excellent. Sadly it basically says there are a lot of connections between Washington power, including Obama fund raisers and Comcast's lobbyists, and it calls in question whether Washington has the incentives and interest to increase competition in high-speed Internet arena.

I recommend reading, in spite of the free registration requirement.

No registration required.

If I could vote this down I would, pay-wall site leave alone!

Registration is free on this site. I've had an account for years (using a throw-away e-mail address) and find their articles generally worth reading.

Pay walls should not be permitted on HN, IMHO.
