Genuity, a subsidiary of Bechtel, announced a new Internet gateway at the Internet World show in New York yesterday.
The majority of the world's Internet traffic is handled by eight major access points. Genuity contends that these are all handled by an oligopoly of phone companies.
Genuity says that the new gateway, based in Phoenix, Arizona, will not only ease the congestion on the superhighway, but will also break the telcos' stranglehold over Internet access.
