If, in this political season, you are reminded that politics makes strange bedfellows, consider that deregulation
makes even stranger ones.Not only are voice and data converging,but, in the process,incumbent and competitive
carriers are literally becoming roommates, sharing facilities in central offices and remote locations as
mandated by the FCC. It may not be a match made in heaven, but it is part of a market explosion that could be
rewarding for all involved.
