This post may draw some fire… But I would strongly suggest anyone doing DD on ATT and looking to invest in it read the following research piece. It is 40 pages long and slows down a bit near the end in the report when discussing protocols, but I promise you it will be worth your time. Print it out, curl up in your favorite easy chair with your favorite beverage and digest it. You will get quite an education.

There are two visions of the future of the internet out there folks. The netheads and the bellheads. It is important your understand the two, especially if you are going to invest your hard earned assets in either vision. If nothing else when you are done reading it you will know what really happens every time you pick up your phone and make a phone call.

T is spending tens of millions of dollars in a legal battle to force upon the world their vision of the future. There is much at stake, a lot more than you know. Reading this will keep you informed. The report is titled:

Netheads versus Bellheads
Research into Emerging Policy Issues in the Development and Deployment of Internet Protocols
Final Report
For the Federal Department of Industry
