Comcast To U.S. Senator: No Plans To Create Internet 'fast Lanes'

The top U.S. cable and broadband provider reassured the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee chairman in a recent letter, Comcast Corp has no plans to create "fast lanes" for any Internet websites or applications. Senator Patrick Leahy last week wrote to top Internet service providers, asking them to pledge to reject so-called paid prioritization deals, in which content companies would pay ISPs to ensure smooth and fast delivery of their traffic. Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen wrote to Leahy in a letter dated Oct. 24 and viewed by Reuters late on Wednesday, "We have repeatedly made clear - both to our customers and more generally to the public - 'Comcast doesn't prioritize Internet traffic or have paid fast lanes, and we have no plans to do so". http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/PoliticsNews/~3/nDtXIhwzOWc/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com
