House vote would easesale of Internet access

WASHINGTON -- The House passed sweeping legislation Wednesday to let four Bell telephone giants sell Internet access nationwide and to relieve them of state and federal regulation.

Supporters hailed the legislation as a boon to expanding Internet service. Foes called it a road map to monopoly and to higher prices for consumers.

The bill would remove requirements in the 1996 Telecommunications Act that the regional Bell companies first open their networks to competitors before being allowed to offer high-speed Internet service nationwide.

Passed by the House on a 273-157 vote, the bill's fate remains uncertain in the Senate.
