Conn. gives nod to AT&T's rollout

Connecticut state utility regulators issued a preliminary ruling that shot down a request to stay their decision to allow AT&T to rollout television services over Connecticut's phone lines. In other words, AT&T has the "preliminary" go ahead to roll out services in the state. Three cable companies and the New England Cable and Telecommunications Association filed the motion to stay the decision, citing possible action by the FCC and pending state and federal legislation. State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said he is "disappointed" with the decision and urged the full commission to reject it.
