Group of high technology companies, such as Apple Computer, Netscape and America Online formed a group that will oppose the idea of charging internet access on a per-minute basis. This is a proposal issued by phone companies. They believe that charges would certainly be shouldered by internet users which will potentially stifle future growth of unlimited exchange of ideas and information.
Most net users pay flat monthly rate to a provider for unlimited access to the internet over their regular home phone. But local phone companies assumes that internet access adds up in clogging their line. The FCC started to work on the issue and is planning to make its decision by the middle of 2009.
