    Well, well...the SBCErs are celebrating

    the greatest dog and pony show the CWA and SBC has ever put on is going great, or so they think. In the old days, this worked great for the regulators. Put up a big show, hand out some fat raises, then base fat raises for management based on the CWA contract. Put it all in the rate structure. The regulators would buy it.
    Today the attitude is, well were not regulated, but lets force the wholesale line issue. After all, we won in court SBC and the CWA say. However, both of their socks were knocked off last week. Seems that Congress is planning to enact legislation to overturn that court decision. The Congress, that represents the citizens, is tired of the usual whines of the RBOC's.
    The people are speaking. Cheap telecomuunication services are needed and the RBOCs can't deliver em. You would think they would though. After all, the public was forced to pay for that network they say is theirs.
    Oh well. Thats an SBCEr for ya. Too ignorant to see what is going on in the real world.
    Psssssssstttttttts SBCErs...listen
    We dont want ya anymore!

    • actually, local dial tone is the greatest bargain today. It's the long distance that is high, but getting cheaper. You want low cost? Compared to what it cost for years until 1985, at 8.95 for basic rate, and today, at less than 16 dollars, is a bargain. Consider that you pay 3.95 for a 12 oz cup of flavored coffee at Starbucks, and then another 4 dollars for a roll, you could have paid half of your basic rate phone bill, in California, which has the cheapest dialtone in the USA.
