ISP, CLECs worry about Bells too

Many of us would think that it is the likes of AT&T and MCI who have suffered the most from FCC’s decision to put an end to the UNE-P. However, the FCC is decision is putting the future of CLECs and ISPs at risk. According to Washington, D.C.-based CompTel/ASCENT eliminating access to high capacity UNE loops and transport will cost U.S. businesses $130 billion. I am not sure how much of it is true, but business market is where competition is quite strong and Bells want to make sure that no one except them have a lock on that market.
