Re: Rep. Fred Upton apparently sold out to incumbent telcos

Hi Jack,

Are you reading Rep Upton's comments correctly? I had interpreted his quote as something like, "It is scary that we were so close to disaster, which could easily have happened if not for a few brave commissioners and judges." I read his thought as being that we need federal regulation to keep the hungry states permanently at bay.

Also, I certainly agree with your point about international competition holding the power of regulators in check. FWIW, I commented to the FCC on the Vonage petition back in November '03, and think I mentioned it then, too.
