This paper briefly examines this article that discusses the problems facing the technology market at present. The writer claims that the article lacks substance - that as a descriptive article it would be perfect, as an argumentative one it fails. The main part of the article discusses the debate that surrounds the progress of broadband technology in the future. The authors present the four main groups, which have a stake in the ultimate result of the broadband legislatures that will be created by the government.

From the Paper:

"The authors focus on Rep. W.J. "Billy" Tauzin's the Louisiana Republican, who is also the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and his bill that requires Telecommunications Act of 1996 to change giving Baby Bells, the telephone companies that control the regional markets more independence on issues related with broadband. Covering a wide spectrum of the debate the writers give the complete and concise interpretation of the issues that concern the various stakeholders who are involved in the paradigm. Contending that these stakeholders are basically the cable television companies, regional phone-service providers, competitive telecom firms, and wireless and satellite companies they suggest exactly why each is so involved in the outcome of the debate and legislature under question."
