FON pries open Time Warner’s iron fist in partnership deal

Interesting development on the internet front. FON, that has been pushing for users to share their bandwidth with other users has inked a partnership deal with the cable giant, Time Warner. What’s interesting about this development is that the cable companies have always maintained an iron fist over sharing residential Internet. This goes for any of the cable giants.
With this partnership, it’s only a limited set of “sharing” going on since you would have to be signed up with FON also, but it does open up a world of possibilities. We’ve been a FON member since practically inception, but we also bypassed the whole residential ruling since we had business cable.
