Verizon Doesn't Want to be an ILEC

Light Reading reports: "Verizon Communications Inc. late Wednesday asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to excuse it from sharing its DS1 and DS3 loop and transport facilities with competing voice providers, especially cable companies. Verizon wants relief from its "dominant carrier" responsibilities in six major metro areas. These include Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Virginia Beach, and Providence, R.I." I have said that this was coming. Now we see how the FCC handles it. (Especially when K-Mart is up for re-confirmation.)
