SBC/Amth problems were|are in the POTS arena. Verizontal seems
able to handle POTS; it's xDSL they fall on their nose over.

Politically, LegisCritters are far more concerned about POTS
problems. There are too few {outraged} xDSL users to form
a voting block, at least so far.

BTW, USWorst was in deep doodoo with its state PSC's a few
years back, esp. after a written management directive to their
govt. liaison staff to "Stall, stall, stall" surfaced. Has that
changed at all?
