FCC SAYS GTE'S ADSL INTERNET ACCESS SERVICES IS AN INTERSTATE SERVICE. The Commission has found that a new service offered by GTE, which permits Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to furnish customers with high-speed access to the Internet through a dedicated connection, is an interstate special access service and therefore subject to federal jurisdiction. Today's decision affirms that GTE's tariff for this service was properly filed at the FCC. The Commission intends to address next week, in a separate order, the broader issue of whether conventional dial-up access to the Internet, made through calls to information service providers, including Internet Service Providers (ISPs), is local or interstate in nature. That decision will address whether incumbent local telephone companies may be required to compensate their competitors for handling calls made by the incumbents' customers to ISPs that are the competitors' customers. Report No: CC-98-41. by MO&O. Action by: the Commission. Adopted: October 30, 1998. (FCC No. 98-292) CCB. Internet URL: http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Common_Carrier/News_Releases/1998/nrcc8081.html
