The government cannot request data with a note saying it is confidential
and then turn around and say it is not. That is not going to fly. If my
data is shared with others then I will file suit against the FCC myself.
Peter, how can you possibly support the idea that it is ok for
confidential data to be gathered and then shared because the ILECs want
it shared? The FCC is not withholding this information to be annoying or
secretive. They are doing so because confidentiality was assured when
the data was gathered.
If this data is shared then Mark Koskenmaki and others were right in
saying we should not fill out those forms. For now I will do it because
it is a requirement according to the governing law of the land. If this
bites me then I will be the first to tell you I was wrong in supporting
the Form 477 process. For now the data is still not being shared and the
form process is still a matter of law, like it or not.

Data that the FCC uses regularly to deregulate. Data that the FCC and
the gov't uses regularly to grant so much to the ILECs.
Someone needs to verify the raw data.

I disagree with that. Confidentiality was promised to the form
fillers. If that confidentiality is breached, ISPs would never
honestly fill them out again, after being betrayed. The FCC is
holding firm, as they know, its the only way to keep getting accurate
data, and standing behind its word is protects the integrity of the FCC.
I do not believe that the FCC GOA has any benefit to fudge their

You know that if they don't want to give up the raw data that they
have fudged the heck out of it!
It has been suggested by many folks, including Peter Huber, that it
might be time to put the FCC out to pasture.
