MCI WORLDCOM TO PAY $3.5 MILLION
Is it time for the FCC to start actions against Internet Service Providers who improperly announce IP address blocks without proper authorization, such as they do for long-distance slamming complaints? http://www.fcc.gov/Bureaus/Enforcement/News_Releases/2000/nren0009.html Is this the only thing which will get major carrier's attention. It would be great if carriers could be trusted to correctly verify IP addresses before announcing them. But as we've seen in the long-distance world, too many carriers act as if they can get an extra buck, they'll do what every they need to do. When will we see the headline XXXX ISP to pay $NNN million for Internet route hijacking?
