"City" piece on the Maine Public Utilities Commission, which in 1995 ordered Nynex to pay $20 million over five years to fund a program to link every school and library in Maine to the Internet. Nynex's estimate that the connections would cost $20 million was based on the company's regular rates, and the company stood to make a $10 million profit. The PUC ordered Nynex to provide the connections at cost, and education advocates urged the PUC to use the extra cash to purchase computers for schools. The PUC is considering several options, including returning a portion of the $10 million to offset future proposals to cut telephone rates. Details.
