I wonder how or if the privacy checkbox will effect the released data if
Also the information will be relatively worthless for what these people
are supposedly looking for. When the form is filled out, we only report
total numbers and zip codes covered. Granted if you serve only 1 zip
code then it is obvious where your customers are. Even in my small
coverage area I serve 4 zip codes and only one of them has any
substatial number of customers.
What I will find disturbing is if they are successful in getting my
customer count released. So what if I find out that Qwest has umpteen
billion DSL customers and they serve my zip code. I already knew that.
However if Qwest of any of the miriade of resellers can see that I have
X customers in my area they may decide that marketing there is now a
good idea because of the uptake potential.

Seems like this scenario was the biggest argument against the form.
Not that we can do much. It's the law.
"""In an effort to get more accurate data, the Center for Public
Democracy has sued

obtain a database that shows which companies serve which zip-codes,
