"Alcatel has at long last Linux support for its SpeedTouch USB ADSL modem. The French comms company will release a driver for the open source operating system, along with the source code, next month."

"That's good news for UK-based Linux users. British Telecom's domestic ADSL service bundles the SpeedTouch, forcing Linux home users to opt for a more expensive Ethernet-connected service."

"Last month, British Linux buffs began an online petition to demand Alcatel get its derriere in gear and ship Linux drivers, something the company promised some time back, but has thus far failed to deliver. The petition drew over 800 signatures."
