Charles, Given your position on this issue, I have to believe that your comments are partially tongue-in-cheek. The telcos have had a government-mandated monopoly for over 50 years where they were allowed to collect monopolistic profits to build the grand network that they possess today. They

Mine was also removed. I think that it was because in my first filing I didn't check the 'late-filed' box and I didn't change it from COMMENT to STATEMENT FOR THE RECORD. The moral of the story is: keep a copy of anything that you send to the government. Fortunately, I did and re-submitted it
