What Effect Will the Mega-Mergers Have?

  1. "To get the FCC’s green light, these industry giants agreed to offer naked DSL, backbone peering, and net neutrality"
  2. "newly enlarged RBOCs agreed to freeze special access rates for 30 months after the mergers close and freeze UNE rates for two years after the mergers close"
  3. "wire center recalculation rules"
Attorney Colleen Boothby: “We’ve had about four or five years of FCC decisions saying: ‘We can deregulate now because competition is going to show up just any minute now! Any minute we’re just going to turn that corner and the market will be fully competitive!’ And it hasn’t happened.”
