Comcast, Zoom Telephonics resolve modem dispute

Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) and Zoom Telephonics have apparently kissed, made up and buried the details. In the process, the two parties who now, according to a Comcast news release, "look forward to working together" have asked the FCC to forget about a complaint Zoom filed against the MSO last November.

Zoom and Comcast were in a tussle over what the news release described as "the testing of Zoom's cable modems intended for sale to consumers at retail outlets and the ability of users to attach Zoom's modems to Comcast's networks."

Now apparently all is sunshine and rainbows with a resolution that "furthers consumer choice in the cable modem marketplace." As usual, no further details were available.
