The article focuses on the ruling of U.S. District Judge Ann D. Montgomery saying that Time Warner Cable can refuse to pay franchise fees on cable-modem service revenue to the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota on November 10, 2005. The judge agreed with the cable network that franchise fees may be collected only on cable services. The city of Minneapolis argued that it has authority under federal and state law to collect modem fees. The Federal Communications Commission declared digital subscriber line service as an information service.
