Sounds awfully familiar...  The knee jerk reaction of
Minsvyazi in USSR was exactly the same.  Good thing, it
later turned out that Anti-Monopoly Commitee were in
fact customers of RELCOM.

Thanks, Paul.

Bell Canada plants to increase line rate charges for Internet service
providers by as much as 400%, saying the higher charge is necessary because
those providers use lines for 55 to 60 minutes every hour compared with
voice usage on a Centrex line of about 10 minutes.  The service providers
say the move aims to eliminate competition for Bell when it introduces its
Worldlinx Internet access by the end of this year.  (Montreal Gazette 9 Nov
