The big Enron Broadband trial started today, and as per Reuters: federal prosecutor Lisa Monaco in her opening statement said, “The mission of Enron Broadband Services (EBS) was to pump up the Enron stock price by telling investors they had a solution — a solution to the congested Internet.”

More will follow in days to come, but I am sure in the end most will come to the same conclusions as I did in my book, Broadbandits: Inside the $750 Billion Telecom Heist. A documentary about Enron is doing the rounds as well.
