This latest on the FCC ruling was taken from www.clec.com06-Nov-98 09:00 AM FCC delays reciprocal compensation ruling The FCC has postponed for at least a week or two a decision whether to claim jurisdiction over dial-up calls to ISPs, according to Reuters News Service. In particular, the FCC has delayed deciding if it will classify Internet calls as long-distance in nature, thereby taking regulatory authority of calls to ISPs away from state regulators. If the FCC does determine calls to ISPs are of a long-distance variety, the decision could end C-LECs' ability to collect termination charges from incumbents on calls from incumbent customers to ISPs served by C-LECs. However, the FCC is expected to let C-LECs continue to collect on such calls at least until current interconnection deals with incumbents expire. After that the Commission may opt to reduce or cut the termination fees.Little debt, owns their switches rather than leasing, ahead of plan for area expansions, plus....I'm betting on a favorable ruling. (That's right, it's a bet at this point.) Phil
