Genuity, a subsidiary of Bechtel, announced a new Internet gateway at the Internet World show in New York yesterday.

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.
