I strongly recommend that any interested parties check out the debate on before contacting your Congressional representative.

Tomorrow starts debate in the house on H.R. 1542 Tauzin-Dingell.

This bill will determine the near term future of communications in
the U.S.

If it passes (without amendments) The RBOC's will not be forced to
share their existing data networks nor any future networks. A level
playing field.

If it passes we will be immediately rolling out existing DSL
services to everywhere we now serve. In addition plans for a new
fiber network will be launched.

A defeat means no new DSL expansion, and no new fiber network.
