But with that bit of verbal fluff, they can already do that. They can offer DSL, if they enable all of their switches. With very little investment they can put DSLAMs a little farther out if need be. Of course they can offer Satellite, always have been able to. I would be further curious to see if they get this merger under these conditions, that they don't have to sell any switch capacity to competitors. Verizon up here in NY has stated at private PSC meetings that they will not upgrade any switches where they have to offer the facilities to competitors. This is just crap language to buffalo those who don't understand what is already out there..............It's hard to watch people make decisions who are uninformed.
