All, Verizon successfully wins the forbearence ruling. Verizon did not even have to prove there case because this was defaulted on. This is a good thing for this industry or for Rural America? Commioner comments below. http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-264436A3.doc

The FCC's Martin is giving away the store and is allowing a complete meltdown of the TA 96 Act. By far, this does not enhance competition as mandated by Sec 10 of the TA 96 Act. I'll agree completely with this statement below: The chairman's action yesterday represents the height of

I personally don't much care for Muni wireless as I would rather the government stay out of the ISP business. With that being said, Rome, GA announced that GTS had won the the contract to install a wireless system for the city. See http://muniwireless.com/municipal/bids/1102/ for details on

I've been watching this and been very curious about the perspective a Bell company could have about backing up their always-up wires. Is that really a concern anywhere... especially in a modern, below-ground, highly reliable infrastructure like is installed in Las Vegas? The only thing that
