it's going to be gblx much better fit less regulations better for dt shareholders in the long term. Stick a fork in it it's gblx. No doubt about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SBC can and will be awesome on its own given a
little time. Just wait until all the pieces fall
together. Look at some of the other posts on this
If DT manages to pick it up the combined entity will

proposal. Of all the states, only Michigan seems to have a

over the number of failed lines they have experienced
due to rain, hail, snow or whatever. It exceeds their
mandate that AIT have some unrealistic number of error
free minutes of use in a northern climate. SBC has
come in and is putting a lot of the potentially
damaged lines in underground fiber optic traces. The
storm damage issue is waneing.

where they need it the quickest AND have strong future
growth is GBLX.
