Q.: at&t to sell SNET holdings to Frontier?

From a presorted First-Class U.S. Mail post card received today:

> Dear Valued Customer, > > Pending regulatory approval, Frontier Communications Corporation will > assume ownership of the Southern New England Telephone Company (SNET) > and SNET America, Inc. (SAI) as soon as late October 2014.

There's more, but it's just customer assuagement talk. And local loop at&t Customer Service reps seem not to have had much of a briefing yet on how to respond to customer inquiries about this, other than to reassure folks that Frontier's corporate headquarters is (grammar: *are*?) in Stamford, CT.

Thus far, only the marketing arm of Comcast seems to have had wind of this impending change, using it as an anti-carrot with which to lure internet clients away from at&t/Yahoo! HSI DSL services to Comcast cable.

What can the repercussions be of this change on local loop service, DSL (or other high-speed ISP) service, the continued existence of the email domains sbcglobal.net, att.net, snet.net, etc., pricing, and billing?

Cheers, & thanks in advance, -- tlvp (from deep in the heart of SNET-land)
