--- MarketWatch Quote --- "How do you think they're going to get to customers? Through a broadband pipe. Cable companies have them. We have them," said Ed Whitacre in a BusinessWeek Online interview. "What they would like to do is use my pipes for free. I ain't going to let them do that." He argued that because SBC and others have invested to build high-speed networks, they are due a return.  --/ MarketWatch Quote --- It's a brave new world. I'm hoping that this is a clueless person talking about a business he is in charge of but knows little about. I fear that this is someone who has a feasible plan to accomplish what he describes. I don't think that a telephone-model overlay on the Internet will satisfy many consumers, but if they don't have an alternative what are their options? Hopefully, this will drive business to the WISPs, but I'm not sure that the consumers are well enough educated to make an informed decision and in many larger markets the LECs have driven us out of the picture by providing service for less than their cost. - Tony  http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story.asp?guid=%7B5A606A5A%2D18D7%2D4FC9%2DA65C%2DC7317BC7E1CB%7D Original interview from Business Week (registration required): http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/05_45/b3958092.htm
