  1. In France, the the incumbent phone company, France Telecom, is required to leave some space for switches and pipes of competitors, whenever they hook up a new building or neighborhood. France has some of the lowest long-distance and broadband subscription rates in the world.

  2. I don’t think anyone is stopping WebPass. More likely they don’t have the resources to go after MDU customers, where the wiring can be expensive. Just look at cable. FCC put an end to exclusives there last year, but I have yet to see an apartment complex being served by multiple providers. Companies are in no hurry to overbuild. If you aren’t already passed by the physical plant of multiple companies, these FCC rulings will do you no good.

  3. What phone company? I really would like to see a graph of the number of customers each of the major phone companies has had over the past 10 years. I would bet that with the tremendous availability of cell phones, the decline in customers using wired service has been phenomenal.
