NetZero and Comcast Bow Down to Cuomo

By Newsgroup Usenet July 30th, 2008

Recently, we had commented on how Cuomo had been putting pressure on Comcast to join its other ISPs in complying with its request to remove specific groups from its Usenet groups.

Today, both Comcast and NetZero have agreed to Attorney General Cuomo’s request and attain compliance by the New York state Attorney General’s office.

The agreement has not yet been revealed on how it will be handled by either company. Sprint and and Verizon recently have deleted certain groups where AT&T and Time Warner have alternatively eliminated thousands upon thousands of groups already. All companies have stated that more adjusting will be done down the line.

While news awaits on what excatly Comcast and NetZero will do to comply, it certainly means a step foward in censoring Usenet.

And don’t forget, we’re also offering refugees of all of these ISPs a 15% LIFETIME DISCOUNT to all new subscribers, regardless of which you plan you choose.
