SBC's anti competitiveness seems to be evident, particularly in the
business services area.

So many CLEC customers have had their DS1, PRI or supertrunk just stop
working at various times of the day, for hours on end, only to be told
by the CLEC that the CLEC is waiting for SBC to do something on their
end. Interesting that the failures tend to be loss of carrier, clock,
battery, loss of termination at the switch, etc., adn.

But when the customer switches to SBC, the failures are all gone and
never return!

I recall some of the early history of The Bell System and the tactics
it used to become the monopoly it was. It is not surprising that
things have not changed much.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: No, things have not changed very much
at all, especially where SBC -- Southwestern Bell -- is concerned,
which is one reason I am inclined to stick with cable internet, even
if they were not local people who run it here. PAT]
