As condition of merger, Why not require ATT and BS to offer settlement-free peering, to all ISPs below a certain size,
without a minimum commit, or to a non-profit entity that allows settlement-free peering? So that the merger helps small ISP continue to gain access to the goliath amount of subscribers that will be controlled by one enitity after the merger.

Marlon-

I'm representing PAETEC in the AT&T proceeding and right now am writing part of the comments of the special access coalition (check out our Sept. 22 filing in 06-74 where we proposed numerous conditions).  I'd be happy to discuss this proceeding (including the 2.5 Ghz issue, on which I wrote back in March - see http://news.com.com/Bumps+in+the+road+for+AT38T-BellSouth+merger/2010-1037_3-6057214.html ) with you or anyone writing for WISPA.  I'd consider it a pro bono activity, since I generally agree with your view of the merger.

OK,

To file click on this link:
http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/upload_v2.cgi
Put 06-74 in the upper left hand corner.

To see what others are writing go here:
http://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/ecfs/comsrch_v2.cgi
Put 06-74 into the blue box at the top.

I'll personally say that I don't think they should be allowed to merge.
We're getting far to close to the recreation of Ma Bell. And companies that
don't play be the rules already shouldn't be rewarded by being allowed to
combine their corrupt efforts.

Should WISPA file anything?
