It started 16 years ago with the well-intentioned, but farcical, "competitive" Telecom Act. Then the "deregulation" of special access in 2002. Then the death of equal access in 2004. We've remonopolized the most competitive and vibrant telecom sector that gave rise to and scaled 80% of the information technology the world uses over the past 30 years. It was the breakup of AT&T that precipitated it all.


good old fashion quid pro quo -- the cable companies get Verizon to cease expansion of the Fios footprint and Verizon prevents a new entrant in the wireless data market.
