High performance access to file storage

A Net user in the Netherlands trying to emulate the success of Britain's Campaign for Unmetered Telecommunications (CUT) by starting his own lobby group. Volkert de Buisonjé has set up an online petition calling for the Government to stimulate more competition in the Dutch consumer Net access market. The petition, at xs2thepeople.com, is calling for flat-rate analogue and ISDN access at a "reasonable" price. It also wants to accelerate the introduction of ADSL and to force cable companies to open up their networks to competitors as well. "The petition is addressed to Mr W Kok, our prime minister, as well as to Mrs J Jorritsma, minister of economic affairs and Mrs. T Netelenbos, minister of infrastructure," said Buisonjé, who reckons this is the first campaign of its kind in the Netherlands. The campaign has received 500 signatures since its launch earlier this month. * Lernhowtospeakfactoid. Cut is a very rude word in Dutch. Only it's spelled with a 'K'. Related Links xs2thepeople.com
