Carlos, although of course we should explain acronyms, it is also the case that the modern discussion on internet governance, regulation and international agreements have been going on at least since the ITRs where signed in 1988 in Melbourne. So there is a balance between how much education we have time for because we must move forward. We can not restart the discussions all the time.

For LLUB or LLU, please see for example (3), (7) and (8) in <http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=CELEX:32000R2887:EN:HTML>.

Overview is also in <http://europa.eu/legislation_summaries/information_society/internet/l24108j_en.htm> where also the issue I brought up to Brian is a big problem in the EU:

That is a statement I strongly disagree with.

For DSLAM, see for example wikipedia: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_subscriber_line_access_multiplexer>
