I'm not sure this was the intent of the Telecommunications Act [of 1996]. The intent was not to rebuild the Bell system. With this merger you would have SBC or Ameritech west of the Mississippi, and Bell Atlantic, assuming it makes a deal with BellSouth, on the Eastern seaboard. I don't know that is good for the American public at large.
